Patients with neuroendocrine tumors may require more follow-up care than other patients.
Some neuroendocrine tumor patients may require follow-up treatment using biotherapies, or other medications. Others may require more frequent imaging tests. Patients at Penn Medicine receive a personalized survivorship care plan that addresses all issues from follow-up care to the physical, emotional and financial complications that can occur long after their therapy is complete.
Survivorship programs at Penn Medicine are a distinct phase of neuroendocrine tumor care and are designed to help patients' transition from treatment to a post-treatment lifestyle.
