Guest Jonathan Posted May 8, 2003 Share Posted May 8, 2003 My uncle was diagnosed a year ago with a neuroendocrine tumor that is sitting on his small intestine and pancreas. He was treated with carboplatin taxol and vp-16. It went into remission for five months, but recentely came back. They have now put him on doxirubicin and streptozocin. I am confused. What is a neuroendocrine tumor? Is it a type of pancreatic cancer? Is it common? Has anyone heard of this before? The reason i am posting here is because I saw a person named john's prefile and he shows that is his mom had a neuroendocrine tumor. I do not know how to contact him, so if he sees this message I would appreciate him emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks Jonathan Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
