There is now much known and further knowledge is being established regarding the specific ret mutations and how they affect the medullary thyroid cancer patient.
Medullary thyroid cancers may also produce symptoms of diarrhea. The diarrhea of medullary thyroid cancer is caused by increased gastrointestinal secretions and hypermotility due to the hormones secreted by the medullary thyroid cancer calcitonin, serotonin, prostaglandins or VIP. Screening and surgical intervention of inherited ret mutation carriers may begin as early as infancy for example in MEN2B or later in life based upon the specific RET mutations and the anticipated age of onset of medullary thyroid cancer.

This is a pathology slide showing medullary thyroid cancer cells which have been stained with this red marker for calcitonin.
Calcitonin is not present in the center of the cell which is called the nucleus. This special staining is basically only seen in the medullary thyroid cancer cells and provides a definitive diagnosis of medullary thyroid cancer.
