Neuroendocrine Tumours (NETs) can affect men and women of all ages, races and ethnicities.
Consider the grey area, know the symptoms, and speak to your GP today.
Do you, or does someone you know have these symptoms?
The skin on your face and upper chest feels hot and changes colour
Asthma-like signs and symptoms, such as wheezing and shortness of breath
A racing heartbeat (palpitations), sometimes combined with dizziness
Your bowel motions are regularly urgent, watery, and frequent with no known cause
Overwhelming exhaustion that cannot be overcome with a good night's rest
A red rash with swelling and blisters that often travels from place to place on the skin
Stories similar to Jamie’s are common. With vague symptoms, many NET patients can wait over 5 years before receiving a correct diagnosis.
