As NETs are an uncommon type of cancer, some people find that their own doctors do not know much about the condition. After your diagnosis, ask your doctor to refer you to a specialist NETs consultant or cancer center.
Try taking a friend or relative with you to your medical appointments. Draw up a list of questions to ask your doctor about your NETs diagnosis, your prognosis, your treatment, and practical advice about dealing with any emotional or physical problems.
Ask your specialist to clearly explain any medical test results of yours that they may be looking at during your visit. If you don’t understand something, ask them to explain it again. It can also be helpful to take notes.
