What Patients Say About Cancer Treatment at New Hope
What is Pheochromocytoma?
Your journey toward cancer remission cannot begin without knowing vital information about your diagnosis.
Pheochromocytomas are rare tumors of chromaffin cells, which are cells of the adrenal gland. The adrenal gland creates hormones called catecholamines. In pheochromocytoma, the cells overproduce catecholamines — specifically norepinephrine, dopamine, and epinephrine — all of which are highly essential for the human body to function. Pheochromocytomas develop in the adrenal glands. Generally, only one of two adrenal glands are affected by a pheochromocytoma, although there may be multiple tumors.
Untreated, a malignant pheochromocytoma can lead to severe or life-threatening damage to other body systems, particularly the cardiovascular system.
Reverse the Signs of Pheochromocytoma
An excess of catecholamines can cause adverse side effects. Here at New Hope Unlimited, we may undo the following symptoms of pheochromocytoma:
- High blood pressure (hypertension)
- Excessive sweating
- Rapid heartbeat (tachycardia)
- Involuntary quivering (tremors)
- Shortness of breath (dyspnea)
- Paleness of the face (pallor)
- Unintended weight loss
- Increased anxiety or sense of doom
Complications of Pheochromocytoma
Hypertension alone can damage multiple organs, especially tissues of the cardiovascular system, kidneys, and brain. Without proper treatment, high blood pressure associated with pheochromocytomas can cause the following critical conditions:
- Heart disease
- Kidney failure
- Acute respiratory distress
- Optic nerve damage
- Cancer cells spreading to the lymph system, liver, lungs, or bones
What Caused Your Cancer?
Medical studies are ongoing to determine the exact cause of pheochromocytoma. The only known risk factors are genetic syndromes, which cause about 25 percent of all cases.
The genetic disorders associated with pheochromocytoma are:
- Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Syndrome
- Von Hippel-Lindau Syndrome
- Neurofibromatosis Type 1 (NF1)
- Familial Paraganglioma syndrome
We encourage you to consider genetic testing and counseling if you or a family member wants to be tested for these syndromes.
Detection and Diagnosis of Pheochromocytoma
The key to improving your pheochromocytoma prognosis and life expectancy is to receive an early diagnosis. Your physician might order a number of tests:
- Laboratory tests, such as:
- Blood tests
- 24-hour urine test
- Imaging tests, including:
- M-iodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) imaging
- Computed tomography (CT) scan
- Positron emission tomography (PET) scan
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan
