What is a Neuroendocrine Tumor?
Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are neoplasms (abnormal growth of tissue) which arise from cells of the endocrine (hormonal) and nervous systems. While many of these tumors are benign, some can be malignant. Neuroendocrine tumors most commonly occur in the intestine, where they are often called carcinoid tumors. They are also found in the pancreas, lung and other parts of the body.
