Rare hormone system cancers

In this section you can find information about rare cancers that develop in the tissues and organs of the hormone system.

The hormone system is a network of glands and organs in the body that produce hormones. It is also called the endocrine system. There are many different hormones.  They act as chemical messengers between one part of the body and another. Each one works on the particular cells that are able to receive and respond to that hormone’s message. They control growth, how the body works, our mood, sexual function and reproduction.
