Introduction: Neuroendocrine Tumors (NET) lack standardized care. Differences in socioeconomic status (SES) worsen the impact of non-standardized care.
Aim(s): We examined the impact of SES on NET peri-diagnostic care patterns and outcomes.
Materials and methods: All adults with NET identified from a cancer registry (1994-2009) were divided into low (1st-2nd income quintiles) and high SES (3rd-5th). We compared peri-diagnostic healthcare utilization (-60 days to +6 months), metastatic recurrence, and overall survival (OS).
