What is Carcinoid Cancer?

Carcinoid cancer is a type of neuroendocrine tumor. It is a rare and slow growing cancer that is often misdiagnosed. Many patients live for years with the symptoms before they are diagnosed correctly and can receive proper treatment. Carcinoid cancer produces hormones which can cause facial flushing, diarrhea, fatigue, and wheezing as well as other symptoms. It is malignant and currently has no cure, but there are specialized medical professionals throughout the country that can offer hope. Join us to learn more.


Our Purpose:

To provide an opportunity for carcinoid patients, caregivers, friends, and medical professionals to get together and discuss the issues relating to carcinoid and other forms of neuroendocrine tumors. Together we will share our experiences and knowledge of the many treatment options that are available to carcinoid patients.
