Follow-up care after treatment of neuroendocrine tumors

The patient is initially followed up with 6 month intervals, sometimes more frequently.

In patients treated with radical surgery, it is important to continue monitoring for up to 10–15 years, since long-term recurrence after curative operations has been registered. Regular interval between follow-up for this group imight be 6 months, 1 year, 2 years, 3 years, 5 years, 7 years, 9 years, 12 years and 15 years.

For a stable disease over 1-3 follow-up visits, the intervals are extended between follow-up visits often to 1 year, but rarely over 1 year.

Examinations at follow-up visit 

  • Clinical status
  • Ordinary blood tests, as well as chromogranin A in serum
  • Image diagnostics, most often a CT scan. In younger patients who are expected to be monitored for many years, use of MRI is appropriate to reduce radiation exposure.
