Hormones help to regulate your body’s growth and function via your bloodstream. The major glands included in your endocrine system are:

  • Hypothalamus
  • Pituitary
  • Thyroid
  • Parathyroids
  • Adrenals
  • Pineal body
  • Pancreas
  • Reproductive organs (ovaries and testes)

Abnormal growths (tumours) in any of these glands may be benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous).  Your treatment will depend on the gland that is involved and the type of tumour.
