Answer

In 2012, the UK and Ireland Neuroendocrine Tumour Society (UKI NETS) released updated guidelines for the management of GEP-NETs. Recommendations for grading and staging are as follows [11] :

  • For grading: WHO 2010 grading system

  • For staging: 7th edition of the AJCC Cancer Staging Manual

  • Also stage NETs of the stomach, pancreas and appendix with the ENETS site-specific T-staging system

  • The TNM classification used should be specified

  • Underlying features of the T-stage classification (eg, tumor size, extent of invasion) should be documented to allow for translation between different classification systems
