Jo shares her story of being diagnosed with a pancreatic neuroendocrine tumour.
I started running when I was 40 and whilst training hard for a running event, I started to get regular and painful indigestion. Every time I bent over doing something physical like gardening I would get acid reflux. I visited my GP and was given omeprazole to treat my symptoms.

Lauren, 32, was diagnosed with a glucogonoma in February 2017 - I was diagnosed as having a 4cm tumour in my pancreas at the start of Feb 2017, after being admitted once again to hospital. I was really poorly. I couldn't eat or keep anything down, not even water and since November 2016 I had lost a lot of weight.

Carole, diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumour in 2014.
I wanted to write this because my experience is different from anyone else’s that I could find at the time of my diagnosis. Hopefully it might help someone else who is in my position.
