Carcinoid Cancer

This elusive cancer's causes are unknown, but it originates in hormone producing cells which line numerous organ systems including the gastrointestinal tract, respiratory tract, hepatobiliary system, and the reproductive glands. This is a slow growing type of cancer that most often affects the gastrointestinal system and it is often possible to remove it before it has a chance to metastasize to other areas of the body.

Affecting primarily people over the age of 50, and more common in women than in men, Carcinoid cancer may produce no symptoms when affecting the gastrointestinal tract, including the appendix, small intestine, and rectum. Early detection provides Dr. Shaye, Dr. Lashkari, and Dr. Ho the opportunity to aggressively treat the cancer so that its ability to spread is reduced. Symptoms associated with advanced carcinoid include diarrhea, facial flushing, and wheezing.
