Carcinoid tumor: Carcinoid tumors can be found in several places in the intestines. They do not cause symptoms unless the liver is affected. Carcinoid syndrome can be associated with flushing, increase in blood pressure, irregular heart beat, etc. If a carcinoid is located with a bowel lumen it can cause blockage. Carcinoids can spread directly to other areas. Usually not by blood stream.
