Neuroendocrine Tumour is a disease which is not frequently heard of.  While many people have already googled and have known the tits and bits of this disease, for those who don`t know, Neuroendocrine Tumour is basically a condition which results in abnormal tissue growth in the neuroendocrine cells of a body. Such type of tumor can develop in many parts of the body including lungs, pancreas, liver, and intestines. However, it mostly occurs in the intestine region of the body.

Survival from Neuroendocrine Tumour solely depends upon the region it has been affected. Also, the stage of the tumor is also important. One can survive in the beginning state. However, gradually as the tumor develops and enters into the malignant stage the survival rate decreases. This disease is indeed rare as less than 1 million cases have so far been registered in India suffering from Neuroendocrine Tumour.

With the stage of the disease as well as the affected part of the body is still unknown in the case of Irrfan Khan, Team Fresh Box Office along with every fan of his wishes a quick and a speedy recovery of the ever talented Irrfan Khan.
