The type you have depends on the particular cells that the cancer starts in. There are a number of different types of NET. They are generally called after the organ or type of cell they develop in. NETs most often develop in the gut or pancreas. These tumours are sometimes grouped together and called gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumours or GEP NETs for short. The different types of neuroedocrine tumors is - Lung neuroendocrine tumours (NETs), Stomach neuroendocrine tumours (NETs), Insulinoma, Gastrinoma, Somatostatinoma, Glucagonoma, Merkel cell skin cancer and Carcinoid. The type of treatment you have depends on which type of NET you have and whether it has spread elsewhere in the body.Treatment might include one of the following or a combination:
Gallbladder cancer is a cancer that begins in the gallbladder, which is part of the digestive system. Gallbladder cancer is more common in women than in men. About 7 out of every 10 cases diagnosed are in women. Gallbladder cancer doesn’t usually cause symptoms in its early stages. So by the time you know it’s there, it might be at a more advanced stage than some other types of cancer. At diagnosis, it has often spread outside the gallbladder itself to areas nearby. It can be difficult for doctors to feel if your gallbladder is swollen or tender when they examine you. The gallbladder lies behind other organs deep inside your body, so it can be difficult to feel. Many early stage cancers of the gallbladder are found by chance. For example, when someone is having their gallbladder taken out to treat gallstones. You may get a number of symptoms with gallbladder cancer. Most of these happen in the later stages of the disease. Common signs and symptoms include
Anal cancer is cancer that starts in the anus. This is the opening at the very end of the large bowel. It is a rare cancer. Anal cancer is more common in women than men. Around 50 out of 100 cases (50%) occur in people aged 65 or over. Many anal cancers are linked to lifestyle or other risk factors. The main risk factor for anal cancer is human papilloma virus (HPV) infection. The common signs and symptoms associated with anal cancer include:
Stomach cancer is cancer that starts anywhere inside the stomach or the stomach wall. It’s also called gastric cancer. Stomach cancer is more common in men than women.

The most common symptoms of stomach cancer include:
The small bowel makes up most of the digestive tract. Cancers of the small bowel are rare. Cancers that have spread to the small bowel from another part of the body, are called secondary cancers. Tumours of the small bowel may be either non cancerous (benign) or cancerous (malignant). Benign tumours include polyps and lipomas. Cancers of the small bowel are rare. Most cases of small bowel cancer are found in the duodenum. Different types of small bowel cancers include - adenocarcinoma, neuroendocrine tumors, lymphomas, Sarcomas and secondary cancers.

Colon cancer and rectal cancer are often grouped together because they have many features in common. Cancer starts when cells in the body start to grow out of control. Cells in nearly any part of the body can become cancer, and can spread to other areas of the body. Adenocarcinomas make up about 96% of colorectal cancers. The other types of colorectal cancers include - Carcinoid tumors, Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs), Lymphomas and Sarcomas.
