What is Neuroendocrine Cancer?

Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) is the umbrella term for a group of unusual, often slow- growing cancers, which arise from neuroendocrine cells found throughout the body. For years this group of cancers was identified as a specific disease called carcinoid. This term is being slowly replaced in medical literature by the term NETs.



“For years, NCAN has been there
for patients as they strive stead-
fastly to educate the medical
community about these orphan
tumors. CCAN is there for you
and they deserve to have all of
us in their corner as well.” -MD

"NCAN has changed
my life… also has helped my
children, siblings, cousins,
…since I am of the rare breed
with a family history of
Carcinoid. I am truly grateful for
their direction." -Patient
