Find out which tests you might have to check whether a carcinoid tumour is causing your symptoms.
If you are diagnosed with carcinoid, you may have some of these tests to find out the size of the tumour and if it has spread (the stage). This helps your doctor plan your treatment.
You may also have some of these tests during treatment to see how well it is working. And after treatment as part of your follow up appointments.
These tests include colonoscopy, endoscopy, endoscopic ultrasound and capsule endoscopy. They look at different parts of the digestive tract.
These tests include a chest x-ray and bronchoscopy. You might also have scans, such as a CT scan.
These include urine and blood tests, a CT scan, MRI scan, PET-CT scan and radioactive scans (such as an octreotide scan).
