MD Anderson’s Endocrine Center is one of the nation’s few comprehensive programs dedicated entirely to diagnosis and treatment of both benign and malignant endocrine diseases.
Endocrine disorders often are complex and involve many areas of the body, particularly the delicate balance of hormones. National and international organizations look to MD Anderson experts to develop guidelines for the management of endocrine disorders.
Unlike most centers, our pathologists specialize in endocrine disorders. They use the most advanced diagnostic tools, including dynamic hormonal testing, genetic testing, nuclear medicine imaging and cross-sectional body imaging for an accurate diagnosis of your condition.
Through our Bone Health Clinic, we provide treatment for cancer patients with metabolic bone disorders or bone loss caused by cancer treatments. Staffed by a multidisciplinary team of experts, the clinic evaluates and treats conditions that include osteoporosis, low bone mass, fractures, height loss and vitamin D deficiency.
Because endocrine disorders can sometimes have long-term effects, we go beyond treatment by anticipating and managing side effects and other chronic medical issues with a detailed long-term follow up plan tailored to suit your needs.
Types of cancers we treat:
- Adrenal gland tumors
- Multiple endocrine neoplasia (MEN) I and II
- Pancreatic islet cell tumors
- Parathyroid tumors
- Pituitary tumors
- Thyroid cancer and certain benign thyroid disorders
- Von Hippel Lindau disease
- Inherited endocrine tumors, including childhood endocrine tumors
Every day is a new day to live. I choose to live an incredible life no matter my diagnosis.
