Carcinoid tumor with hepatic metastases


The mesenteric mass was biopsied and was consistent with a carcinoid tumor with hepatic metastases.

Sometimes carcinoid tumors can spread and release high levels of hormones, resulting in carcinoid syndrome. The symptoms of carcinoid syndrome vary depending on what hormones are being released into the bloodstream, but may include flushing of the skin on the face and chest, diarrhea, and wheezing and shortness of breath.
