Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors

From a review in Gastroenterology.

Most are “malignant” with the exception of insulinomas. “Malignant” is quotes because clinical behavior in terms of tumor bulk and metastasis is generally indolent, and the major clinical impact is from the secretory products, though some tumors are nonfunctional.
