Diagnosis of Neuroendocrine Tumors

There are many ways to diagnose a tumor, determine whether it is cancerous, and if so, find out if it has spread to another part of the body, called metastasis. Some tests may also determine which treatments may be the most effective. For most types of tumors, a biopsy is the only way to make a definitive diagnosis of cancer. If a biopsy is not possible, the doctor may suggest other tests that will help make a diagnosis. Imaging tests may be used to find out whether a cancerous tumor has spread. This list describes options for diagnosing this type of tumor, and not all tests listed will be used for every person. Your doctor may consider these factors when choosing a diagnostic test: Age and medical condition, Type of tumor suspected, Signs and symptoms, Previous test results

Neuroendocrine cancer may be diagnosed after a person goes to a doctor because of symptoms, or it might be found during a routine physical exam or other tests. If there is a reason to suspect you might have cancer, your doctor will use one or more tests to find out. Signs and symptoms might suggest you have Endocrine cancer, but you will need tests to confirm the diagnosis.
