Endocrine tumors can be benign or malignant growths that develop in the endocrine system -- the network of glands that produce hormones. It includes the thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal, and pituitary glands and the pancreas. 

Thyroid cancer is the most common malignancy of the endocrine system and one of the most common cancers in the U.S. Many other endocrine cancers are rare and are frequently benign, meaning they do not spread. Neuroendocrine tumors, which are also rare, can occur in both the endocrine and nervous systems.
