Carcinoid tumors may be defined as noncancerous (benign) or cancerous (malignant) growths that sometimes produce excessive amounts of hormone like substances, resulting in the carcinoid syndrome.Only 8 to 10% of all carcinoid tumors are associated with the carcinoid syndrome. The rate of growth of a carcinoid tumor is typically slow, and many patients with carcinoid syndrome survive for years after the disease gets diagnosed.
