Introduction: Studies show an increasing trend in the incidence of neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs). A significant number of NENs occur in less common primary sites, but they are often excluded from the population based studies.
Aim(s): We studied the incidence trends of NENs in Norway according to different primary sites, including rare cases.
Materials and methods: Our analyses were based on cancer cases diagnosed from 1993 through 2010 and reported to the national population-based Cancer Registry of Norway (CRN). A total of 70 morphological codes were identified as neuroendocrine and stratified into 3 different groups of aggressiveness; low, intermediate and high.
