Irrfan Khan's NeuroEndocrine tumour can be cured - This Mumbai doctor gives some hope


Entire bollywood industry is in shock, after actor Irrfan Khan revealed that he is diagnosed with NeuroEndocrine Tumour, a rare kind of growth that can metastasize into cancer. Khan had tweeted March 5 that he had a “rare disease,” which sent the media into overdrive speculating on what it was.

Meanwhile, Dr. Saumitra Rawat, HOD, Surgical Gastroenterology & Liver Transplant, Sri Ganga Ram Hospital, talked to media on the matter and gave some hope that this tumour can be cured and also gave some insights about its nature and medication.

Dr Rawat said, "NeuroEndocrine Tumour is an abnormal growth of Neuroendo cells which are present in bodies. When there is an abnormal growth, then it forms a tumor - Normally seen in intestine, pancreas, lung, thyroid and other parts of the body". On commenting on Khan's case, he said, "It depends on the location of the tumour, its size, and what is its mytotic index". He further noted that such kind of tumours can be taken out surgically. "Depending on where the tumour is localized, you can take it out surgically and the chances of cure are very high", Dr Rawat explained.
He added that once the procedure is done, the patient is required to have regular check-ups for any recurring tumours.
