Neuro endocrine tumor is a condition in which the neuro endocrine cells develop into tumors. This tumor may either grow slowly or sometimes rapidly and can also spread to other parts of the body.
Generally the symptoms are not detected initially. Basically a neuro endocrine system is composed of neuro endocrine cells.

1.Nausea and Vomiting.
3.Weight loss.
4.A cough that does not go away.
5.Sweating, fainting, dizziness.
6.Skin rash.
7.Yellowing of skin
9.Discomfort in the abdomen.
10.Persistent pain in specific area.

It is difficult to diagnose at early stage. It must be closely examined if any of the above symptoms occurs. It can be cured with the help of surgery.
