Childhood Endocrine Tumor Diagnosis
The diagnosis of endocrine tumors is usually made via an imaging procedure (usually ultrasound, CT scan, MRI, and/or nuclear medicine tests) as well as a thorough evaluation of hormone levels. In cases of a thyroid tumor, a fine needle aspiration (biopsy) is often utilized to render the correct diagnosis.
