Cancer of the Adrenal Gland
Cancer of the adrenal gland is uncommon. It can produce a variety of hormones and often result in the rapid onset of symptoms. Surgery is often the only option for treatment and possible cure. These tumors can be large at the time of diagnosis and require open surgery for removal.
The hormones produced by the adrenal gland are essential, but because the adrenal glands are redundant organs, patients can function with only one gland. However, some conditions may require removal of both glands. We offer cortical sparing surgery to patients who require removal of both glands.
