Center for Neuroendocrine Tumors
The UCSF Center for Neuroendocrine Tumors provides comprehensive care for patients with all types of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). Arising from cells that have traits of both nerve cells and endocrine cells, these rare tumors may produce hormones and can develop in many parts of the body, including the head and neck, lungs, pancreas and digestive tract.
We're equipped to handle any NET, no matter where it appears in the body or how it behaves. Our team includes surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, radiologists, cardiologists, endocrinologists, symptom management experts, genetic counselors, nutritionists, psychologists, social workers and other specialists. We work together to provide patients with a precise diagnosis and treatment plan tailored to their particular case and needs.
All of our patients can expect to receive the latest and most effective therapies available for their condition. For a patient with a pancreatic NET, for example, the best treatment might involve minimally invasive surgery to remove the tumor. A patient with a gastrointestinal tumor might benefit from peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT), a new radiation technique that targets cancer cells. And we might use advanced screening tools, such as the UCSF500 Cancer Gene Panel test, to identify the precise biology behind another patient's tumor.
Our goal is to deliver world-class care from a holistic perspective. We make sure that our patients and their families have the support they need to face the physical, emotional and financial challenges that can arise after a cancer diagnosis. UCSF offers a wide range of cancer support services, including a bimonthly education and support group for patients with NETs and their loved ones.
