Introduction: Little is known on resource utilization and health care costs in NET care.
Aim(s): To define patterns of costs in NET management and compare them to a more common malignancy, colon cancer (CC).
Materials and methods: We identified all NET in a cancer registry (2004-2012). They were matched to CC patients (1:3). 2012 CND$ costs were obtained for 4 phases of care around diagnosis: pre-diagnostic (PrDx: -2 years to -181 days), diagnostic (Dx: -180 days to +180 days), post-diagnostic (PDx: +181 days to +3 years) and prolonged post-diagnostic (PPDx: +181 days to +9 years). Mean costs per patient were compared. Costs predictors were analyzed with quantile regression.
