Causes of different types of islet cell tumors may include genetics and those with certain conditions such as tuberous sclerosis or von Hippel-Lindau disease. Symptoms may include abdominal pain, dizziness, diarrhea, headache, nausea, and more. Doctors may treat these tumors with surgery, radiation, medications, or other methods.
