Sex differences in carcinoid syndrome: A gap to be closed

"The incidence of neuroendocrine neoplasms and related carcinoid syndrome has dramatically increased over the past decade," the researchers say, although women are more susceptible than men to develop CS. Nevertheless, very few studies have looked at sex differences in clinical presentation and outcomes of CS. However, sex, as with other tumors, may play a role in influencing tumor localization, delay in diagnosis, clinical trials, prognosis, and overall survival in CS. The present paper was intended to investigate sex differences in CS, as they emerged from a lengthy review of the latest literature. CS occurs more often in females than in male patients with NENs and women with a marginal advantage in overall survival and response to therapy, according to the study. In addition, the disease likely affects both men and women's quality of life, with different psychological and social implications. ".
