Childhood Endocrine Tumor Symptoms

Symptoms of childhood endocrine tumors will vary depending on the endocrine glands involved, and may vary from child to child. Some general symptoms may include: 

  • A painless lump (such as a neck mass)
  • A specific problem caused by too little or too much hormone production
  • An incidental finding when X-rays are obtained for another health condition
