Questions to ask your doctor about neuroendocrine tumors

Your healthcare team will talk with you the surgery options that are best for you. You may want to bring a family member or close friend with you to appointments. Consider asking each of the following questions:

  • Where is the tumor located?
  • Has the tumor spread beyond where it started?
  • What’s the tumor’s stage, and what does that mean?
  • What type of treatment do you recommend and why?
  • What type of side-effects come along with this treatment?
  • Should I consider taking part in a clinical trial?
  • If I need surgery, where will the incision be?
  • If I need surgery, how much tissue will be removed?
  • Will I need treatment after surgery, like radiation or chemotherapy?
  • What type of follow-up care will I need?
  • When can I go back to my normal activities?
