A carcinoid tumor is a neuroendocrine tumor. It is begins in the hormone producing cells of the neuroendocrine system, which is made up of the endocrine system and the nervous system. The most common sites of occurrence of a carcinoid tumor are the intestines, kidneys, lungs, and stomach. Carcinoid tumor is a rare malignant disorder that accounts for less than 1% of all malignant disorders. Approximately 2 to 4 out of 10 carcinoid tumors are found in the lungs. The cause of lung carcinoid tumors is unknown. Approximately 4,500 lung carcinoid tumor cases were diagnosed in the U.S. in 2018 as compared to 200,000 lung cancers. Lung carcinoid tumors are divided into two categories. One is typical carcinoids, which account for 9 out of 10 lung carcinoids, and the other is atypical carcinoids. As per PubMed research and Baylor Scott & White Center for Thoracic Surgery, atypical carcinoids are much rarer as compare to typical lung carcinoids.
Some common symptoms associated with carcinoid tumor are facial flushing (warmth) and redness, weakness, increased amount of body and facial hair, shortness of breath, weight gain, and wheezing or asthma-like symptoms.
Doctors or professionals can diagnose carcinoid tumors based on medical history and tests. The common diagnostic tests are chest X-rays, computed tomography scan (CT scan), and blood and urine tests. Doctors also recommend biopsy to confirm carcinoid tumors. Non-surgical biopsies and surgical biopsies are the two major types of biopsy.
