Endocrine Cancer

Rush University Medical Center offers multidisciplinary care for people with cancerous and noncancerous tumors of the endocrine system, the body’s network of hormone-producing glands. These include tumors that develop in the thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal glands, as well as hormone-secreting tumors in the pancreas. Some of these tumors include the following:

  • Adrenal tumors
  • Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors
  • Parathyroid tumors
  • Thyroid tumors

If you have a suspected or diagnosed cancer, we are here to help. Call (312) 942-6163 to schedule an initial visit or a second opinion.

Diagnosis

The endocrine cancer team at Rush uses state-of-the-art procedures and imaging techniques to diagnose each patient as quickly and accurately as possible. We offer patients the following advanced diagnostic capabilities:

  • Computed tomography (CT) scan
  • Endoscopic ultrasound
  • Fine-needle aspiration of the thyroid 
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Nuclear scanning, an imaging procedure in which patients take a tiny amount of a radioactive substance either orally or via injection. The scanning machine can detect detailed information about the particular tissues that attract the substance, enabling physicians to find small tumors or determine whether a treatment is working.

Treatment

Rush offers the full range of treatments for endocrine cancers, from standard therapies to innovative treatment options, and new options are being explored every day. 

Clinical Trials

Physicians at Rush are involved in a number of clinical trials evaluating new treatment options for endocrine cancers. Through clinical trials, some patients can access experimental treatments that are not otherwise available.

Resources

  • The Cancer Integrative Medicine Program offers complementary and alternative medicine to accompany your medical treatment plan.
  • Rush offers a patient navigator to assess individual patient needs and provide information about available treatments, community services and programs.
  • Our cancer program offers counseling and other services to address patients’ and families’ social and emotional needs.
