Time: 10:00 am to 1:15 pm
Join Carcinoid-NeuroEndocrine Tumour Society Canada for their online discussion on supportive care in NETs.
NETs, or Neuroendocrine tumours, are:
- abnormal growth of cells (neoplasms) that arise from cells of the diffuse neuroendocrine system, the cause of which is currently unknown
- considered complex tumours because both tumor growth and hormonal function must be addressed
- most common in the lung or gastrointestinal system, but they can also originate in other parts of the body such as the thyroid, thymus, pancreas, adrenals, paraganglia, ovaries and testes
- classified as functional (produce hormones that cause symptoms), or non-functional (may or may not produce hormones and do not cause hormonal symptoms)
