Alternative Cancer Treatment Testimonial from Cindy

What Are Adrenal Tumors? Understand Your Disease

Adrenal tumors develop in the small, triangular glands (adrenal gland) positioned on top of your kidneys. These glands are part of the endocrine system and produce hormones that give instructions to almost every organ and tissue in your body.

The two main types of adrenal tumors are adenomas (benign or noncancerous tumors) and carcinomas (malignant or cancerous tumors). These tumors can occur at any age, but often affect children younger than 5 and adults in their 40s and 50s. If a tumor is malignant, adrenal cancer or adrenal cortical carcinoma (ACC) can be very aggressive. 100% recovery is at a high chance if the disease is found early.

Adrenocortical Carcinomas We Treat at New Hope Unlimited

There are two types of adrenocortical carcinomas:

Functioning tumors

Increase the body's production of adrenal hormones, including aldosterone, cortisol, and testosterone.

Nonfunctioning tumors

Do not increase the adrenal glands’ hormonal production.

Symptoms of Adrenal Cancer

Excess production of hormones such as androgen, estrogen, cortisol, and aldosterone can cause the following symptoms:

  • Early signs of puberty in children
  • Enlarged breast tissue in males
  • Deepened voice in females
  • Increased facial and body hair, particularly in women
  • High blood pressure
  • High blood sugar
  • Irregular menstrual periods in women
  • Weight gain
  • Frequent urination
  • Muscle cramps
  • Quick bruising
  • Depression

Most symptoms of adrenal tumors are identical to many other conditions or health problems. Consult your doctor to receive an accurate diagnosis.

Adrenal Tumor Risk Factors and Prevention

At this point, scientists do not know the exact cause of adrenal gland tumors. However, about 15% of tumor growths are caused by genetic disorders such as Li-Fraumeni syndrome, Familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP), and Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1).

Due to unknown preventable risk factors for benign and malignant adrenal tumors, it is not possible to prevent the disease at this time. In many cases, making healthier food choices, limiting alcohol consumption, exercising regularly, and making routine visits to the doctor can help prevent many diseases, which may include adrenal tumors.

Detection and Diagnosis

An estimated 200 to 500 people in the United States are diagnosed with adrenal cancer each year. Diagnosis begins by examining your medical history and physical exam results. Your doctor will also collect blood and urine samples for testing.

Your healthcare provider may order further tests, including:

  • Adrenal angiography
  • Computed tomography (CT) scan
  • Image-guided fine needle biopsy
  • Positron emission tomography (PET) scan
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan
  • Ultrasound

FAQs

1. What is the main difference between adrenal adenoma and adrenal carcinoma?

Adrenal adenoma does not invade nearby tissue or spread to other parts of the body the way adrenal carcinoma can. However, benign adrenal tumors can still produce excess hormones.

2. What is the survival rate for adrenal cancer?

There is an estimated 65% survival rate if cancer is detected and treated before it spreads outside the adrenal gland.

3. What should I expect during and after treatments from New Hope Unlimited?

The stage of your cancer is significant to how well treatments will work. Once you achieve remission, regular visits to the doctor are necessary to examine your body’s response to any lifestyle changes, as well as prevent recurrence.
