Adrenocortical CarcinomaAdrenocortical carcinoma is a rare form of cancer of the adrenal gland. Back pain, abdominal pain, a lump in the abdomen, and a feeling of abdominal fullness are symptoms and signs. Treatment depends upon the cancer's stage but may include chemotherapy, surgery, or radiation therapy.
Adrenocortical Carcinoma in ChildrenThere are two adrenal glands sitting on top of each kidney. The outer layer of the adrenal gland is the adrenal cortex. Adrenocortical carcinoma is also called cancer of the adrenal cortex. Childhood adrenocortical carcinoma occurs most commonly in patients younger than 6 years or in the teen years, and more often in females.
What Are the Symptoms of Adrenal AdenomaObesity, muscle weakness, severe fatigue and high blood pressure are just a few of the symptoms of a functioning adrenal adenoma (benign adrenal gland tumor). Many of these tumors cause no symptoms -- these are designated “non functioning” as they don’t affect hormone levels.
