Characterization of Elderly Patients (≥70 Years) with Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs) Abstract #710

Introduction: Incidence of NETs increases with age; however, age-specific epidemiologic analyses are lacking.
Aim(s): To epidemiologically characterize elderly patients (pts) with NETs and their association with NET prognostic factors.
Materials and methods: The data from the Spanish Regional ATNEA Registry were analysed for differences between the older (≥70 y) and younger (<70 y) patient population.
