Eva Comperat, MD, Hospital Tenon, discusses the treatment strategy for patients with neuroendocrine tumors (NETs).

Patients who have NETs are generally more benign cases, making it important to treat them differently, states Comperat. There are patients who will metastasize, so it is crucial for the pathologist to make the right diagnosis and for the medical oncologist to understand how to best treat these patients.

There are new data about the molecular biology of the tumor. There are 2 subgroups of NETs, one of which is more genetically unstable. Having different strategies for these tumors will benefit the patients, explains Comperat.
