Neuroendocrine tumor overview on Wikipedia

Summary of human GEP-NETs by site of origin and by symptom[edit]

  • The endocrine system is a communication system in which hormones act as biochemical messengers to regulate physiological events in living organisms. The nervous system performs the same functions using electrical impulses as messengers. The neuroendocrine system is the combination of those two systems, or more specifically, the various interfaces between the two systems. A GEP-NET is a tumor of any such interface.
