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.
