Register Now! The Toronto Supportive Care in NETs Patient Education Webinar

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)
