In brief: Excision
Assessment for local (nodal) disease, and distant metastasis: chest, abdomen ct scan, as well as certitude that it is not a mis-diagnosed small cell lung cancer.
These are most common in the head and neck region. They are neurendocrine tumors. They sometimes require chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
