What are NETs?

NETs (neuroendocrine tumors) occur when neuroendocrine cells stop functioning normally and start to develop and/or function abnormally.

NETs are named for the part of your body in which they first form. So if you have a NET that started in your lung, you will be diagnosed with a lung NET; your lung is then determined as the primary site of your cancer.
