Episode 18: High-Grade NETs and NECs
While most neuroendocrine tumors are low-grade and slow growing, there are some that are high-grade and very aggressive. These high-grade NETs and NECs are treated very differently. In the newest episode of NETWise, we turn the spotlight on high-grade NETs, talk with NET physicians about the treatment challenges, and hear from a patient and caregiver about dealing with the diagnosis.
Episode 17: Focus on Liver NETs
Very often, the liver is the first and most significant site of NET metastasis, and for many people, managing the disease in their liver becomes the most challenging part of their NET journey. In this episode of NETWise, we’re going to focus on an organ that is almost never a NET primary site, but nevertheless is crucially important to many people with NETs: the liver.
Episode 16: NETs and Nutrition
In this episode of NETWise, we’re going to look at all the ways that NETs interact with nutrition–how having a NET can affect your body’s ability to use nutrients properly, and how what you choose to eat can help or hurt your NET treatment and quality of life.
