Slower growing: Carcinoid tumors can occur throughout the intestine and may act in a malignant fashion and spread to lymph nodes and other organs. They tend to grow more slowly that more common (adenocarcinomas) cancers in the intestinal tract. They can sometimes be cured with surgery and survival can be long term even after spread due to their nature of sometimes growing very slowly.
