Tumors or cancer of the pancreas. Depending on the types of ISLET CELLS present in the tumors, various hormones can be secreted: glucagon from PANCREATIC ALPHA CELLS; INSULIN from PANCREATIC BETA CELLS; and SOMATOSTATIN from the somatostatin-secreting cells. Most are malignant except the insulin-producing tumors (insulinoma).
