    Hello, carcinoid tumours are rare tumours  of the neuroendocrine system  (the system of the body that produces and controls many different types of hormones)

    They are also called Neroendocrine tumours (NET's ) 

    They can occur  in several areas of the body which means they may produce different symptoms in different people.

     Having a rare cancer can feel very isolating as it is often dificult to connect with others in a similar situation.  I am aware you have posted because you want to connect with other members  and I hope they will be in touch either here or by private message to share their experiences . 

    You may also be interested to know about the NET patient foundation  which has a forum specifically for  people with NET's.

    You are  of course  also welcome to drop into any of our Centres or to messaage me if you  have a question or would like to talk things over

     Best wishes

     Robyn
