Possibility of neuro endocrine tumor having anything to do with celiac or gluten intolerance (or for that matter, manyfood intolerances)?

Is it a stomach or GI tumor?

It is possible, as the tumor is sometimes a result of damage to DNA after birth. http://www.cancer.org/Cancer/GastrointestinalCarcinoidTumor/DetailedGuide/gastrointestinal-carcinoid-tumors-risk-factors

Yes, these are linked to Celiac, especially untreated for 20+ years. It seems to originate as a result of the damage to the cells of the small intestine lining.
