Adrenal Tumors

Adrenal tumors, or masses, are either benign or malignant growths on a patient's adrenal gland. Both benign and malignant tumors of the adrenal cortex may produce steroid hormones, with important clinical consequences. Symptoms of adrenal tumors are usually secondary symptoms: either symptoms resulting from over or under-production of certain hormones; or symptoms resulting from the size of the tumor impacting other nearby organs. Consult with a physician for further information and diagnosis.
