Description

Carcinoid cancer is a rare disease with approximately 8,000 cases reported in the U.S. each year. Because of its rarity and slow-growing tendencies, carcinoid is often improperly diagnosed, and when diagnosed, treated incorrectly. This is the story of one person's relentless battle against carcinoid, and of the author's struggle to come to terms with the death of her beloved sister. Inside, you'll also find the words of some of the world's top carcinoid / neuroendocrine tumor (NET) specialists, invaluable reference data, and a comprehensive list of the top carcinoid / NET specialists around the world. Recently updated for 2016-17 and beyond by Unlimited Publishing LLC, new resources and treatments are now included, which were not available at the time of initial publication.show more
