Annually on November 10th, NET Cancer Day, the world NET (neuroendocrine tumor) community joins together to raise awareness about cancers called neuroendocrine tumors and the need for timely detection and diagnosis. More than 50% of all NET patients are incorrectly diagnosed and initially treated for the wrong disease. Misdiagnoses or delayed diagnoses mean that NET patients are treated on average five years for the wrong disease; often the correct diagnosis is not made until the disease has spread (metastasized). There are an amazing number of activities taking place across the globe on and around NET Cancer Day as individuals and organizations seek to bring the message of NET Cancer Day to people around the world. The International Neuroendocrine Cancer Alliance (INCA), creator and coordinator of NET Cancer Day, encourages everyone to participate — patient organizations, patients, caregivers, doctors, nurses, emergency medical personnel, researchers, pharmaceutical companies, individuals, Ministries of Health – the more, the better.
