We are here to break the isolation so often felt by those with these rare diseases, and we would be delighted to welcome you into our 'family'.
The aim of our website is to direct you as quickly as possible to our support services and to information you can trust on multiple endocrine neoplasia (MEN) types 1, 2, and 3, medullary thyroid cancer (MTC), familial medullary thyroid cancer (FMTC), adrenal gland tumours (phaeochromocytomas), parathyroid hyperplasia, paragangliomas, familial isolated pituitary adenoma (FIPA) and succinate dehydrogenase (SDH) disorders.
AMEND is pleased to bring you our latest publication: 'Starting a Family: Your Choices'. Funded by a grant from the Society for Endocrinology, this publication aims to provide an introduction to the different conception options available to someone with MEN, and some of the practical, physical and emotional aspects of each of these. We also signpost you to sources of additional information, support and advice. Download for free or order a free hard copy if you are a registered patient member of AMEND.
