Hello doctor,

I am a 67-year-old male patient. My report says, "neuroendocrine tumor well-differentiated benign against a background of chronic duodenitis." Kindly let me know whether it is cancer or not. I have no other health problems.



Welcome to

Ki-67 is not done yet. That information is required to say if it has malignant cancer potential. Kindly ask the lab to perform the same.

Thank you doctor,

I am sending the IHC markers report. Kindly let me know whether it is cancer or a normal one, whether it is a major or minor problem, and if it is permanently curable. I am sending all the reports. Please let me know in detail.



Welcome back to

I have gone through all the reports attached by you.

The Ki-67 is 19 percent. So, it will be classified as a neuroendocrine neoplasm. Kindly note that above 20 percent it is classified as carcinoma requiring chemo. Since it below 20, a close watch can be considered. But you should undergo staging workup such as CT scan of abdomen, pelvis, and chest as a baseline.
