For many years, when a celebrity is diagnosed with a disease that disease gets some newsworthy status as with Michael J. Fox and Parkinson's. However, NETs or Carcinoids, being rather rare, do not generally acquire such status and therefore does not seem to become newsworthy. However in today's paper there was a story about a celebrity, Irrfan Khan, being recently diagnosed with a NET. Here is a link to the article, https://www.clickondetroit.com/entertainment/life-of-pi-star-irrfan-khan-reveals-he-has-a-rare-tumor
Star Irrfan Khan tweeted Friday that he has been diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumor. As you may know, he starred in Life of Pi and Slumdog Millionaire.
There is mention of Mayo Clinic and their explanation of NETs. While Irrfan Khan does not reveal the location of his NET or anything about his treatment, I thought you would all be interested in this news. I am sure that we wish Irrfan Khan well in his treatments and his adjustment to this unusual diagnosis and it is my hope that his fans do respect his privacy in this matter.
