Welcome to my Neuroendocrine Cancer Glossary of Terms list providing a source of meanings for acronyms and medical terms, all sourced from top Neuroendocrine Cancer and general cancer sites. 

How to use this list:

1. If your term begins with an A, click on A to find all terms beginning with A.  Select your term from the list.

2. For numerical terms, please click on the hashtag (#) symbol in the A-to-Z strip.

3. The term definition including acronym or abbreviation will be given in full along with any of my published articles containing that term as long as I have tagged it on my website to display in the list. 

Please note I’m constantly working on the repository to clean up all definitions, adding and removing links where necessary, and ensuring all definitions are linked to at least one article.  Where a definition is not yet linked to an article, the definition will still be listed, and you will see a message saying “nothing found” and offering you a search of my entire website. 

Thanks for supporting this repository which was a “lock-down” project.

    I know that you have a lot information about this cancer, I have metastasis in the liver. I have every 28 days somatuline depot and chemoembolization when I need it. When I start to feel sick because new tumors I have pain in my joins like electric shocks. My doctor said that doesn’t have nothing to do with cancer. After the chemoembolization the pain go away so I suspect that is related. Please I want to have your opinion

    • I can’t really say yes or no to your question, I am not a doctor. It could be side effects of your treatment but that is a guess. Doctors normally say to allow 3 or 4 monthly injections to let your body get used to it.

I love comments - feel free!
