Can a person with carcinoid drink alcohol?


Nevena Damjanov, MD, Medical Oncologist at Penn Medicine responds.

Alcohol is not recommended for people who have underlying liver disease, or people who are receiving active treatment of their carcinoid. In people who had all of their disease removed, an occasional drink may be well tolerated.
