ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: International guidelines suggest a watchful strategy for small nonfunctioning pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors. The aim of this study was to evaluate the management and indications for surgery in patients with asymptomatic nonfunctioning pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors ≤2 cm. METHODS: Patients with asymptomatic, incidental, sporadic nonfunctioning pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors ≤2 cm without nodal or distant metastases were included (2012-2016). A comparison between active surveillance and surgery groups was performed. RESULTS: Of the 101 included patients, 72% underwent active surveillanc and 28% were surgically treated. Patients submitted to surgery were significantly younger (53 vs 60 years, P = .013), had a higher incidence of positive CONCLUSION: One-third of patients with asymptomatic small nonfunctioning pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors ≤2 cm underwent surgery. Patient's preference, initial tumor size, and young age were the main determinants of surgical indication. Preoperative diagnostic workup, including
