Managing Pulmonary Neuroendocrine Tumors: Challenges and Breakthroughs


Kerry Austen

Pulmonary Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs) are a complex and heterogeneous group of neoplasms that arise from the neuroendocrine cells of the respiratory epithelium. These tumors are relatively rare, accounting for only a small percentage of all lung malignancies, but their management presents unique challenges due to their diverse clinical behavior and varied treatment responses. Over the years, significant progress has been made in understanding the biology of pulmonary NETs, leading to breakthroughs in their diagnosis, treatment, and overall management. In this article, we will explore the challenges associated with managing pulmonary NETs and highlight the recent breakthroughs that have revolutionized their management strategies.
