Pancreatic Endocrine Tumors

Pancreatic endocrine tumors are rare tumors that may produce excess hormones (causing high blood sugars, low blood sugars, ulcers) and sometimes are cancerous. They require a coordinated treatment plan that includes surgery and rarely chemotherapy and radiation therapy. It is very important that the proper lymph node surgery be combined with the surgery and that surgery be done by doctors that frequently treat tumors of the pancreas.
