What Sets Us Apart

Adrenal tumors are growths that occur on the adrenal glands, two small organs located on top of the kidneys in the lower back. The adrenal glands provide the body with a number of important hormones, including aldosterone, which regulates blood pressure, and cortisol, which helps you respond to stress.

Tumors on the adrenal glands may produce abnormally elevated levels of hormones that cause high blood pressure, diabetes, and other diseases. Adrenal tumors that overproduce hormones, as well as tumors that appear malignant—or cancerous—may need to be removed.
