The Neuroendocrine tumor (NET) is a rare type that interacts with the nervous system or in glands that produce hormones. They have characteristics of both nerve cells and hormone-producing endocrine cells. The tumors originate most often in organs in the gastrointestinal tract, the pancreas, and the lungs but can occur anywhere in the body.

Neuroendocrine tumors may make higher than normal amounts of hormones, which can cause many different symptoms. These tumors may be benign (not cancer) or malignant (cancer). Neuroendocrine tumors are difficult to diagnose because they can develop anywhere in the body and behave differently based on where they grow.

Signs and Symptoms of Neuroendocrine Tumor

Many times NETs don’t show signs in the beginning stage and that’s why it is sometimes hard to diagnose it. The symptoms of NET are wide-ranging as they are based on the location of the tumor.

Common Symptoms are:

1.Sudden weight loss
2. Dizziness and Shakiness
3.Constant fatigue
4.Diarrhea and other gastrointestinal issues
5.Increased thirst
6.Frequent urination
7.Swelling in the feet and ankles
8.High blood pressure

Treatments


Treatment for NETs varies, depending largely on the type and stage of the disease. Common treatment options for Neuroendocrine tumors include Surgery (to remove the primary tumor), chemotherapy, hormone therapy, targeted therapy, interventional radiology, peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT), and radiation therapy (this is done when surgery is difficult).
