I agree that this educational programme:

Clinical Takeaways

  • Recognising the symptoms of a potential NET can be challenging as presentation may be heterogenous, dependent on hormone secretion, and many patients have symptoms similar to those found in other conditions

  • Steps to diagnosis include symptom assessment, size, grade and stage of the tumour, whether the tumour is hormone-secreting and evaluation of predisposition to an underlying hereditary syndrome

  • Referral to a NET centre of excellence is advised to ensure comprehensive care by a multidisciplinary team, which provides access to advanced imaging techniques and innovative treatments for the earliest possible treatment of localised and advanced tumours
