Neuroendocrine Tumors: Types

There are a number of different types of NETs. They are generally called after the organ or type of cell they develop in. NETs most often develop in the gut or pancreas. These tumours are sometimes grouped together and called gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumours or GEP NETs for short. NETs of the gut are most often carcinoid tumours. They may also just be called carcinoid. NETs that develop in the pancreas are also called endocrine tumours of the pancreas. Some of these tumours can also develop outside the pancreas. For example, gastrinomas have been reported in the medical literature to develop in the ovaries, kidneys, stomach and liver, and not just in the pancreas and small bowel area.
