Exocrine and Endocrine Pancreatic Disease

Endocrine neoplasms are fatal because they secrete abnormal amounts of hormones, such as insulin. b. Clinical Manifestations: Cancer of the body and tail of the pancreas is generally asymptomatic until the tumor invades adjacent tissue.

27. The Reproductive System

Accessory reproductive organs include (1) ducts that provide passages for transport of the gametes, (2) various glands that secrete fluids required by the reproductive system, and (3) perineal structures that are important during copulation.
