Neuroendocrine tumours [NETs] are a diverse group of rare neoplasms arising from neuroendocrine cells found throughout the body and in particular in organs such as the lungs and gastrointestinal tract. In view of their rarity and differences in their presentation they often pose a challenge problems with delay in diagnosis and management. The Asia Pacific Neuroendocrine Tumour Society was founded in 2013 to enhance the understanding and care of neuroendocrine tumours in the Asia Pacific. The membership of the society includes healthcare professionals from diverse specialties such as endocrinology, gastroenterology, surgery, oncology, pathology, radiology, and nuclear medicine.
