November 10th is World NET Awareness Day
Neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) is the umbrella term for a group of unusual, often slow growing cancers, which develop from cells in the diffuse endocrine systems.
They are found most commonly in the lung or gastrointestinal system, but they can arise in other parts of the body, such as the pancreas, ovary and testes, among other sites.

- Because early detection of NET cancers is a public health priority
- Because a day focused on NET cancers can bring hope and information to people living with NET cancers, their caregivers and families
- Because we want equity in access to care and treatment for NET cancer patients around the world
- Because we need an action that can bring all stakeholders of the NET cancer community together with the same goal
