Disease Overview

Adrenocortical Carcinoma

Carcinoid Tumors is a very rare and slow-growth cancer usually formed in the gastrointestinal tract; starting from the mucosal lining of a variety of gastrointestinal tract organs such as the stomach, the appendix, the small intestine, rectum and colon or from the lungs. In the later stages, the Carcinoid tumors sometimes cause a production and release of hormones into the body that causes the ‘carcinoid syndrome’ and shows the signs and symptoms such as a flushing of skin on the face and/or upper chest, breathing trouble and diarrhea.

  • Gastrointestinal Carcinoid Tumor is a cancer form in which cancerous cells get formed in the gastrointestinal tract lining.
  • The risk of developing Gastrointestinal Carcinoid Tumor increases on certain factors such as family history or the stomach's inability to make stomach acid.
  • Gastrointestinal carcinoid tumors do not show any signs and symptoms in the diseases early stages and infact, its the tests or treatments done for other conditions which highlight the formation of this tumor.
  • The spread of the tumor to the liver may cause the occurrence of the Carcinoid syndrome and show the signs and symptoms of this cancer type.
  • Physical examination and history, Blood chemistry study, Tumor Marker tests, 24-hour urine test, MIBG scan, CAT scan, MRI scan, PET scan, Endoscopic ultrasound, Upper endoscopy, Colonoscopy, Capsule endoscopy and Biopsy are used for the early detection and diagnosis of Gastrointestinal Carcinoid Tumor.
  • The treatment options and the chances of disease recovery are dependent on the stage, size and location of the tumor.
