Understanding SSAs, Chemotherapy, and Targeted Therapy

What treatments do oncologists use to slow or stop neuroendocrine tumor growth? What role do newer approaches like targeted therapy or immunotherapy play in treating neuroendocrine cancer? And what drugs can be used to alleviate symptoms caused by hormone-producing tumors? 

In this episode of NETWise, we explore multiple medical treatments for neuroendocrine tumors. We’ll look at the different roles chemotherapy, targeted therapy, and hormone therapy play in managing the spread of disease…and in managing the disruptive symptoms caused by some NETs. 

You’ll gain insight into the sequencing of treatments as we discuss how medical treatments are integrated with other modalities of care, such as surgery and nuclear medicine. And when you’ve finished listening to this important discussion, you will be more informed for the next conversation you have with your care team about treatment planning.
