What is Carcinoid Tumors?
FINAL CONTENT TO COME (this section)
The neuroendocrine system is made up of cells that “connect” the nervous system and the endocrine system. Neuroendocrine cells release hormones (sometimes called peptides) into the circulatory system in response to a stimulus received from the nervous system. These specialized cells are scattered throughout the organs in the body and are the cells that give rise to neuroendocrine tumors.
