Rare Disease Day Special 2017: Understanding Neuroendocrine Tumors
February 28, 2017
Struggling to get a diagnosis?

Symptoms vary widely between NET patients and may be confused with irritable bowel syndrome, rosacea, ulcers, Crohn’s disease, allergies or pneumonia. Blood work and urine tests are available, as well as CT, PET and other imaging techniques that can locate and identify NET lesions. There is a huge gap between the number of patients diagnosed with NETs and the number of people who are living with NETs, but are unaware that they have the disease.
