Answer

ENETS guidelines provide the following recommendations for treatment of duodenal tumors [15] :

  • All localized tumors should be removed

  • Endoscopic resection for tumors ≤1 cm confined to the submucosal layer, without lymph node or distant metastasis

  • Surgical resection with lymphadenectomy for tumors in the periampullary region

  • Surgical resection for tumors >2 cm and tumors of any size with lymph node metastases
