Cancers that start in specialized cells called neuroendocrine cells (these cells have traits similar to those of nerve cells and hormone-producing cells) are known as Neuroendocrine tumors.
These tumors are rare and may occur anywhere in the body. Most of these tumors occur in the lungs, appendix, small intestine, rectum, and pancreas. Some tumors grow slowly, and some grow very quickly. Some produce excess hormones (functional neuroendocrine tumors), and some don't release hormones or don't release enough to cause symptoms.
The treatment options depend on the type of tumor, its location, and the signs and symptoms of excess hormones produced by the tumor.
In Surgery, surgeons remove the entire tumor and some of the healthy tissue surrounding it.
In Chemotherapy, potent drugs given through the vein are used to kill tumor cells.
Targeted drug therapy blocks the specific abnormalities present within tumor cells. The treatment is usually combined with chemotherapy for advanced neuroendocrine tumors.
Peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) combines a small amount of a radioactive substance with a drug that targets cancer cells. It allows radiation to be delivered directly to the cancer cells.
In Radiation therapy, powerful energy beams, such as X-rays and protons, are used to kill tumor cells. It might be recommended if surgery isn't an option.
