Health-Related Quality of Life in Patients after Diagnosis of Nonfunctioning Asymptomatic Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Neoplasms (PNEN) <= 2 cm Abstract #1241

Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (pNEN) <=2 cm can be treated conservatively.
Aim(s): To evaluate the physical, mental and psychological status of patients with non-functioning, asymptomatic pNEN <= 2 cm, who underwent wait and see follow-up protocol as compared to the quality of life in the general Italian population.
Materials and methods: 31 patients with asymptomatic pNEN <= 2 cm who underwent wait and see follow-up protocol were included. All these patients were invited to participate to a survey consisting of 2 standardized health-related quality of life (HRQL) measures, which were the Italian version of the SF-12 Questionnaire and the General Health Questionnaire.
