can orange urine have anything to do with a lung carcinoid ?

Probably Not: Would not expect a lung carcinoid to turn urine orange. Orange urine can be from liver failure and it may be possible for a carcinoid in the liver or bowel to affect this, but there usually would be other symptoms as well. Orange urine can also be caused by certain medications and by a diet high carrots, beets, etc. Dehydration might also make the urine this color. Check with your doctor.
