    Family History of Mid gut Carcinoid Cancer

    Does anyone else have 2-or more blood related family members with a proven diagnosis of carcinoid cancer? Example: Myself and Aunt. Must be diagnosed through a pathology report, please. Am the rare of the rare.

      Sorry, Zebrajennie. I'm not aware of any family history of carcinoid cancer. My mother died at 77 after being diagnosed with a malignant tumor in her spine. She died less than a month later so the primary tumor was never identified. I prefer to doubt that it began as carcinoid.
