Adrenal Cancer

Causes of Adrenal Cancer

As with most types of cancer, doctors do not know what causes adrenal cancer, but there are some risk factors that may increase a patient’s chance of developing adrenal gland tumors.

Some experts conclude that neuroblastoma may be inherited from parent to child, but there are neuroblastoma tumors that are not hereditary. Hormonal birth defects may also cause adrenal cancer.

Research and clinical trials continue to seek the cause of adrenal cancer so doctors may develop better treatments and a cure.
