• Links between Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma and Neuroendocrine tumors

    I'm trying to understand whether there are any links between Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma and Neuroendocrine tumors apart from them both being cancers.

    In 2012 my late wife died approximately 18 months after she was diagnosed with neuroendocrine tumors.

    Around a year ago my girlfriend was diagnosed with Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma she underwent treatment which to date we believe to have been successful.

    Both women were below 25 years old, athletic, non smokers with balanced diets and no family history of cancer. I'd like the know whether this is just a case of misfortune or whether there may be environmental or transmittal factors at play since superficially these would appear to be two unlikely events.
