Neuroendocrine Tumours (NETs) Overview

  • Neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) are abnormal growth of cells (neoplasms) that arise from cells of the diffuse neuroendocrine system.
  • NETs are considered complex tumours because both tumor growth and hormonal function must be addressed.
  • NETs are most common in the lung or gastrointestinal system, but they can also originate in other parts of the body such as the thyroid, thymus, pancreas, adrenals, paraganglia, ovaries and testes.
  • NETs are classified as functional (produce hormones that cause symptoms), or non-functional (may or may not produce hormones and do not cause hormonal symptoms).
  • The cause of NETs is currently unknown.
