I was diagnosed in November 2016 after a mass was incidentally discovered during a cervical MRI for an unrelated issue. That discovery led to a CT scan, then a biopsy. Incidental discovery is a common scenario for NET patients, as symptoms are often misdiagnosed and folks may suffer for years and go without appropriate treatment. I am currently stable in my disease and monthly treatment has proven effective in controlling my symptoms. However, there are thousands of others who are not faring so well and they need our help.
