How long since your tumor was identified?

I would like to join @amandajro in welcoming you to Mayo Connect. I am glad that you joined this discussion group for support and information.
I'm sure that you are glad that this was found when the tumor was small. That is always a good thing. However, as neuroendocrine tumors are somewhat rare, how was this small tumor diagnosed? Had you been having symptoms that led to a diagnostic test?
I have also had three small NETs in the upper digestive tract and I certainly understand the importance of finding a good surgeon.
I look forward to hearing from you again. Will you post again and share your journey?
