Diagnosis of Neuroendocrine Tumors

There are many ways to diagnose a tumor, determine whether it is cancerous, and if so, find out if it has spread to another part of the body, called metastasis. Some tests may also determine which treatments may be the most effective. For most types of tumors, a biopsy is the only way to make a definitive diagnosis of cancer. If a biopsy is not possible, the doctor may suggest other tests that will help make a diagnosis. Imaging tests may be used to find out whether a cancerous tumor has spread. This list describes options for diagnosing this type of tumor, and not all tests listed will be used for every person. Your doctor may consider these factors when choosing a diagnostic test: Age and medical condition, Type of tumor suspected, Signs and symptoms, Previous test results

  • Blood/urine tests
  • Laryngoscopy
  • Computed tomography (CT or CAT) scan
  • Surgical biopsy
  • Computerised Tomography (CT) Scan
  • Magnetic Imaging Resonance (MIR) Scan
