Description:
Neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) are cancers formed by cells that release hormones in response to signals from the nervous system. They occur at various sites in the body but are most commonly diagnosed in the digestive system, particularly the pancreas and small bowel, and in the lung. Many NETs are benign i.e. do not invade surrounding tissue or spread to other parts of the body. This article focuses on invasive NETs as defined by RARECARE1, but also includes invasive pheochromocytomas and non-invasive NETs (carcinoids) of the appendix. Due to large numbers of unspecified cancer subtypes in the lung, NETs at this site are excluded, in accordance with the RARECARE definition.
