Adrenal Tumors

Why Choose Florida Hospital?

While most adrenal gland tumors are non-cancerous (benign), treatment or surgery may be necessary to stop adverse symptoms. The adrenal gland releases important hormones into the body, and tumors may interfere with the level of these hormones. Whether benign or cancerous, treatment for adrenal gland tumors usually involves surgery to remove the mass. Specialists at Florida Hospital provide the highest level of care for our patients through innovative technology and advanced, minimally invasive procedures. Schedule an appointment to see if you are a candidate for these advanced treatment options.

What the Adrenal Gland Controls

Found above the kidneys, the adrenal gland operates in two parts, both sections producing important hormones to regulate the body. The outer section called the adrenal cortex regulates metabolism, blood pressure and physical characteristics such as hair growth and the shape of the body. The inner section called the adrenal medulla controls physical and emotional stress.

When an adrenal mass appears on either of the two parts of the gland, it can affect the level of hormone released into the body. Usually, adrenal gland tumors are found while performing imaging tests for other conditions or while diagnosing hormonal imbalance symptoms.

Florida Hospital specialists encourage anyone with symptoms of adrenal gland cancer to seek medical help. Our physicians can diagnose and treat your condition.
