Exploring the Rising Incidence of Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors According to the Data from Regional Cancer Registry: A Population-Based Analysis of Epidemiology Abstract #1365

Introduction: The incidence of gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETs) is reported to arise worldwide. Similar tendency is observed in Bulgaria during the recent 6 years.
Aim(s): Our objective was studying the epidemiological characteristics of the diagnosed GEP-NETs for a period of 6 years tumors according to database from Regional Cancer Registry in Pleven, Bulgaria and assessing the influence of the early detection of GEP-NETs over their rising incidence.
Materials and methods: A population-based retrospective study for GEP-NETs according to data from Regional Cancer Registry in Pleven, Bulgaria from 2010 to November 2015. The main outcomes include epidemiological information for sex, age, date of death, pathological characteristics, localization, degree of differentiation, TNM-classification and conducted surgical treatment.
