Range of medical services

In the special consultation hour for neuroendocrine tumors, you will be cared for if you have a neuroendocrine tumor, e.g. in the area of the gastrointestinal tract, the liver or the pancreas.

If you have problems in confirming the diagnosis, in planning the therapy, in carrying out various therapy options or in long-term tumor follow-up, you can be referred by your family doctor or the gastroenterologist in charge for presentation in the consultation hours.

At regular intervals, sometimes during an inpatient stay for a few days, extensive examinations of the tumor spread are carried out

to determine the current status of the disease,

to monitor the success of a therapy or

to document the possible progression of the disease in good time and then to be able to react to it with an adapted therapy.

Between the staging examinations, regular monitoring takes place in the special consultation hours, usually every three to six months, in order to be able to react to changes in the course of the disease at an early stage if necessary.

Therapeutic options

In cooperation with the Surgical Clinic of the Charité, Campus Virchow-Klinikum, a joint decision is made as to whether a surgical therapy option can be considered and, if so, surgery is performed. After surgery, you will then receive further care in the Department of Hepatology and Gastroenterology.

Some neuroendocrine tumors can lead to pathological changes in the heart, which can affect long-term life expectancy. In order to detect these at an early stage, a cardiological monitoring program has been established in collaboration with the Department of Cardiology at the German Heart Center Berlin (DHZB).

Other treatments

If surgical therapy is not an option in your case, or if you require additional internal therapy after surgery, you can be treated as far as possible within the framework of clinical studies according to the current state of knowledge. In addition to the possibilities of drug therapy (e.g. biotherapy with somatostatin analogues or interferon-alpha), this also includes interventional radiology with the possibilities of embolization or chemoembolization of liver metastases in cooperation with the Department of Radiation Oncology of the Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin. A radiotherapeutic procedure is also under development and will be offered as a therapeutic option.

Has NET treatment changed in recent months due to the Corona pandemic?

Before each consultation, we check whether you as a patient have any particular risk factors for or even already show signs of infection with the coronavirus. If this is the case, we first ask for an appropriate test to be carried out to be on the safe side. 

In cases where it is justifiable, we also offer a telephone consultation, should you be in quarantine, for example!

Diagnostics that do not necessarily have to take place at the Charité (e.g. CT or MRI, blood samples) can also be performed close to home by the family doctor or the oncologist in private practice.

If you have any questions, e.g. concerning your personal situation or the scheduled appointments in our center, please do not hesitate to contact Ms Schröder or Ms Steglich, who will assist you flexibly and reliably.
