Endocrine Diseases

The endocrine system is the collection of glands that produce hormones that regulate many body functions including metabolism, growth and development, tissue function, sexual function, reproduction, sleep and mood among other things. Too little or too much secretion of a specific hormone can be due to a genetic disease like hypothyroidism. There are several genetic endocrine disorders that can lead to a greater risk of cancer of the endocrine system.
