Chemotherapy can be an important aspect of neuroendocrine tumor therapy, depending on where the neuroendocrine tumor originated as well as tumor differentiation and grade. While chemotherapy regimens are often administered intravenously, some regimens used in neuroendocrine tumors are taken orally (pills) at home.
