Complexity of neuroendocrine tumors we treat

Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are rare cancers that arise when these cells begin to grow abnormally. Unlike most cancers, they tend to grow very slowly. Since a neuroendocrine tumor arises from cells that produce hormones, the tumor itself can produce extra hormones, causing illness. Hormones the tumor secretes cause many symptoms of neuroendocrine tumors. Because the symptoms can be varied and vague, they are easily misdiagnosed.

Types of neuroendocrine tumors we treat:
·   Multiple Endocrine Neoplasias: Type 1, Type 2A, Type 2B
