The risk of metachronous cancers in patients with small-intestinal carcinoid tumors: a US population-based study
Endocrine-Related Cancer, 05/31/2012
Amin S et al. – Almost one–third of patients with SICs have an associated metachronous primary tumor. When these primaries occur prior to (but not after) the Small–intestinal carcinoids (SIC) diagnosis, the prognosis is worse than with an initial SIC. The type of malignancies associated with SICs may guide future screening efforts.
