Neuroendocrine Tumours

Neuroendocrine tumours are malignant cancer cells found in the neuroendocrine system affecting organs including the gastrointestinal system, lungs and pancreas.

Symptoms for neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) include fatigue, flushing, heart palpitations, an upset stomach and bowel symptoms.

Unfortunately NETs are difficult to diagnose because the symptoms are common across many illnesses, and treatments vary depending on where the tumour is located, how many there are, pace of growth and more.

The Hospital Research Foundation Group is proud to support the Nuclear Medicine Department at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital as a leader in the treatment of neuroendocrine tumours by providing patients access to world-leading clinical trials and research.
