What Patients Say About Cancer Treatment at New Hope
What is Adrenal Cortical Carcinoma (ACC)?
Understanding your diagnosis is the first step toward cancer remission.
Adrenal cortical carcinoma or adrenocortical carcinoma is a rare disease. The malignant (cancerous) tumor begins in the adrenal cortex, which is the adrenal glands’ outer layer. The adrenal glands are found on top of the kidneys. They play a significant role in the endocrine system, which is responsible for producing and controlling hormones.
To be specific, the adrenal cortex creates hormones that regulate the body’s metabolism and blood pressure. Furthermore, it produces the stress hormone called cortisol, as well as male hormones called androgens, which include testosterone. Adrenocortical carcinoma can cause excessive production of these hormones.
Untreated, ACC can spread to nearby tissues, regional lymph nodes, and/or internal organs. Acting now, however, may improve your prognosis.

- Enlarged breast tissue in men (gynecomastia)
- Erectile dysfunction
What Caused Your Cancer?
The causes of adrenocortical carcinoma are unknown. However, ACC can be a secondary cancer, which is what happens when cancer from another organ or part of the body spreads to the adrenal glands.
Medical scientists have also identified a number of risk factors for adrenal cortical carcinoma:
- Being female between the ages of 40 and 50
- Genetic disorders that affect the adrenal glands
- Exposure to carcinogens in the environment
- A personal history of aggressive cancers, such as:
How Do Doctors Confirm a Cancer Diagnosis?
To improve your adrenal cortical carcinoma prognosis, getting an early and accurate diagnosis is imperative. Your doctor might order these tests to screen for ACC:
- Medical history and physical exam
- Blood and urine tests for adrenal hormones
- Imaging tests, including:
- X-ray of the chest
- Computerized tomography (CT) scan
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan
- Positron emission tomography (PET) scan
- Removal of a sample tissue (biopsy)
After receiving an adrenocortical carcinoma diagnosis, the next most important step is to plan your treatment with New Hope Unlimited.
