Stages and grades of pancreatic NETs

The stage of a neuroendocrine tumour (NET) tells you its size and whether it has spread. The grade means how abnormal the cells look under the microscope. Doctors use the same staging and grading system for all types of pancreatic NETs.

The tests and scans you have to diagnose a pancreatic NET give information about the stage and grade. This helps your doctor decide which treatment you need.
