What is Adrenal Cancer?

Description of the disease

Adrenal cancer is a malignant tumor that develops in the adrenal glands, glands located above the kidneys. It is a rare disease, but can have serious consequences.


  • Pheochromocytoma - adrenal cancer that produces excess adrenaline and noradrenaline.
  • Neuroblastoma - adrenal cancer that develops from nerve tissue.


Symptoms of adrenal cancer may include high blood pressure, rapid heartbeat, sweating, headaches, tremors, and weight loss.


The causes of adrenal cancer are not fully understood, but may include genetic changes, exposure to toxic substances, and other factors.


Diagnosis of adrenal cancer includes testing hormone levels, imaging (e.g. CT or MRI), and tumor biopsy.


Treatment of adrenal cancer may include surgical removal of the tumor, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and medications to control hormone levels.


Since the causes of adrenal cancer are unknown, there are not many ways to prevent it. However, regular check-ups and taking care of one's health can help in detecting the disease at early stages.


Treatment of adrenal cancer is carried out by an oncologist or endocrinologist specializing in diseases of the endocrine system.
