Neuroendocrine Cancer Awareness: Bournemouth patient Carolyn Evans and Brighton patient Brian Rubin

Neuroendocrine Tumours (NETs) are relatively rare cancers and originate from cells that have the ability to make hormones and can be found anywhere in the body. When you have a rare cancer such as a NET it is much more difficult for patients to get support compared to more common cancers and that is the reason why today we are highlighting these cancers. As NET patients can present with non-specific symptoms it can take on average three to seven years for patients to be diagnosed hence raising awareness is crucial. There have been fantastic treatment developments in the last decade and we have seen survival significantly increase. The Royal Free Hospital, London is a European Centre of Excellence for the treatment of these cancers and both NET representative patients Carolyn Evans from Bournemouth and Brian Rubin from Brighton are treated at the Royal Free in conjunction with their local Hospital.
