Surgery is the most common treatment to remove carcinoid tumors, which tend to be slow-growing.

Overview

Your individualized treatment plan will depend on the location of the tumor, your overall health, and your preferences. Our surgical oncologists may use minimally invasive, video-assisted surgery, which can minimize your pain and recovery time. Radiation and chemotherapy also may be needed if the tumor has spread. We also may recommend targeted therapy, a treatment that blocks the growth and spread of cancer cells while limiting damage to healthy cells.
