The study of hormones and its related treatments of hormone-based conditions is known as endocrinology. Chemicals from the endocrine glands create hormones which in turn is released in to the blood stream. In due course of time other organs are instigated by these hormones in the blood stream when they exercise their action. Thyroid, pancreas, parathyroid, adrenal, gonad and pituitary are the key endocrine glands in the body. The primary functions of these hormones from the endocrine glands include regulating growth, metabolism, blood pressure, reproduction, etc.If the endocrine system encounters problems, it may result into multiple disorders. These can be typically categorised into two groups:
- If any of the endocrine glands start producing and increased or decreased levels of the endocrine hormone, it is referred to as a hormone imbalance. Many endocrine related disorders may be caused as a result of this imbalance.
- If lesions such as nodules or tumours develop in the endocrine system, it may have an impact on the hormonal levels leading to endocrine disorders.
The majority of endocrine lumps, more popularly referred to as tumours or nodules are benign. Therefore, the chances of these abnormal cells penetrating other organs in the body are rare. Nonetheless, the gland’s hormone production may face disruptions due to these lump formations.
