Adrenal Gland Removal
You may need removal of an unusual growth of tissue on your adrenal glands if the mass makes too many hormones or is concerning for cancer. Often, the surgeon will remove the growth with a laparoscopic adrenalectomy. This procedure uses only small incisions and reduces pain, scarring and recovery time after surgery.
Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors make too many hormones and can cause symptoms such as stomach ulcers, bleeding, low blood sugar and diarrhea. You might develop this tumor because of an inherited genetic condition. These conditions can lead to tumors in other glands that need to be monitored and sometimes removed. Your surgical team is experienced in managing these rare disorders and can help direct surgery and management decisions for you and your affected family members.
