Do you have family members with NET?

Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia (MEN) are inherited genetic disorders that may result in a neuroendocrine tumor. It is also associated with endocrine problems that are not cancer related. If you have been diagnosed with MEN (MEN 1 or MEN 2) or have a family history of endocrine problems (thyroid, parathyroid, or adrenal) or NET, we recommend that you be followed in a NET specialty center like NOLANETS.

The NOLANETS faculty at Ochsner Medical Center - Kenner specialize in the diagnosis and management MEN. We have a high-risk outpatient clinic especially designed to advise patients with MEN and offer genetic testing and counseling to patients and family members who may be affected by this genetic mutation. This clinic is accessible in person or over a virtual platform. Genetic counseling is merely getting an accurate family history of endocrine related problems and neuroendocrine tumors. Genetic testing is looking at mutations in your DNA that are characteristic of MEN.

What Is a Neuroendocrine Tumor?

A neuroendocrine tumor (NET) is a rare hormone-producing tumor that can originate anywhere in the body. While some NETs are benign, carcinoid tumors are the most commonly detected NETs, and they are usually found in the lungs or the gastrointestinal tract.
