Investigating the Increasing Incidence of Neuroendocrine Tumors in Pakistan as a Result of Increased Awareness Abstract #1661

Introduction: Incidence of Neuroendocrine tumors has been increasing worldwide. The reasons for this rising incidence remains unknown.
Aim(s): We aim to investigate the increasing incidence of neuroendocrine tumors in Pakistan by assessing the patterns of metastatic presentation and their early detections. We also aim to analyse the increasing awareness about NETs among Pakistani population.
Materials and methods: The study was conducted in Shaukat Khanum Cancer and Research Centre, Lahore. Patients with the confirm diagnosis of neuroendocrine tumors were included in the study. The main outcomes considered for the study were overall survival, proportion of metastatic disease, site specific and overall incidence. Knowledge assessment was done by constructing a questionnaire.

Introduction: Because of the low incidence, nonspecific symptoms at presentation, lack of awareness, and non-uniform classifications, gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NETs) remains a poorly understood disease, and delayed diagnosis is common among patients with GEP-NETs.
