Neuroendocrine neoplasms are increasing in incidence. The complexity of these tumors is manifested in their dual impact on patients: Not only do they grow and metastasize like other cancers, but they also make hormones that result in clinical syndromes, causing signs and symptoms that impact quality of life. Because they tend not to be rapidly proliferative, the usual approach to these tumors with chemotherapeutic agents has not been successful. However, recent advances in understanding the genetic and epigenetic alterations that underlie neuroendocrine tumors provide novel approaches to their treatment, while also clarifying the role of genetic screening for early detection. In this Special Issue, experts in this field will review the current approaches to the management of patients with the spectrum of neuroendocrine neoplasia.
