Endocrine and thyroid cancer diagnosis at Levine Cancer Institute

Endocrine cancer includes cancers of certain glands located throughout the body, including the following:
  • Thyroid
  • Parathyroid
  • Adrenal
  • Pituitary
  • Hypothalamus
  • Certain parts of the pancreas

If thyroid or another type of endocrine cancer is suspected, your doctor will perform a thorough physical exam, as well as order tests to determine if a tumor is cancerous and, if it is, whether the cancer has spread.

Possible diagnostic tests include:
  • Biopsies
  • Blood, urine and stool testing
  • Neurological testing, including balance and reflexes
  • Imaging tests
  • Endoscopy
  • Colonoscopy

Endocrine and thyroid cancer treatment

To ensure you receive the most comprehensive care possible, from diagnosis to long-term follow-up, our experts from fields such as endocrinology, surgery and radiation oncology all work together to map out the right treatment plan.

Treatment is highly individualized. While we offer standard options such as chemotherapy and radiation, individual treatment varies, depending on factors like your overall health and location of the tumor.
