NET Cancer Day is an annual event held on the 10th of November, created to increase awareness of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) and to provide a voice to the NET community for improved diagnostics, treatments, information, care and research. It is coordinated by the International Neuroendocrine Cancer Alliance (INCA) and has been celebrated annually for more than 10 years.
INCA is the global voice for patients with neuroendocrine cancer and genetic neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) and their caregivers.
Neuroendocrine cancers are frequently misdiagnosed and early detection is key.
The NET Cancer Day campaign has been traditionally focused on highlighting the common symptoms that can be interpreted as other conditions, but are also a sign of neuroendocrine cancer. The delay in reaching a correct diagnosis has been a burden for the NET patient community to get timely treatment and the correct care. The need for increased NET awareness among healthcare professionals has been part of the core communication of NET Cancer Day.
Last year the campaign slogan “Know the symptoms. Push for diagnosis.” reached an audience of over 30 million people in social media and brought the public attention to the uncommon cancer hidden behind common symptoms.
In 2023, the NET Cancer Day campaign slogan “Easily missed: Take a closer look at neuroendocrine cancer” aims to put the spotlight on:
