Neuroendocrine Tumors: What Are They and How Should They be Managed? (C)
This session has been identified and designated as Credit to Meet ACS Accreditation/Verification Requirements for Cancer.
Neuroendocrine tumors arise from cells throughout the endocrine system. They comprise a broad family of tumors of which the most common are carcinoid tumors (most commonly arising from the lungs/bronchi or gastrointestinal tract) and pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors. Less common neuroendocrine tumors arise from the thymus, parathyroid, thyroid, adrenal, and pituitary glands. The appropriate diagnosis and treatment of these tumors often involves a multidisciplinary team, using specific biochemical, radiological, and surgical approaches. This session will discuss the diagnosis and management of these diverse, rare tumors, including therapeutic options for neuroendocrine liver metastases.
