Epidemiological Characteristics from a Single Centre Database. Cohort of 1301 Neuroendocrine Tumor Patients: Is There an Association Between Age and Grade of NET?


Introduction: There is limited data related to epidemiology of NETs and patient survival. For many cancers younger age of diagnosis can be associated with worse survival.

Aim(s): To provide a breakdown of the different characteristics of NET presenting to a tertiary referral centre and examine the association between age of diagnosis and survival.

Materials and methods: Retrospective analysis of 1301 NETs from the database (2000-2013). Demographic data, primary site, grade and age at diagnosis were collected. Survival data was calculated from date of diagnosis to date of death in 166 cases.
