Is there any contraindication for carcinoid patients regarding massage by a physical therapist?
Massage is okay for carcinoid patients as long as the massage is not done over the tumor ( i.e. the liver area or the abdomen if that is where the tumor/s are). Also physical activity of the nonviolent type such as walking, swimming and exercising (not heavy weight lifting or contact sports) are good for noids.
