Adrenal adenoma

Also known as Adrenocortical Adenoma

A adrenal adenoma is a benign tumor of the glandular type (adenoma) in the adrenal gland. While some adrenal adenomas do not secrete hormones at all (nonfunctional, often diagnosed incidentally as incidentalomas), some secrete cortisol (causing Cushing's syndrome), aldosterone (causing Conn's syndrome), or androgens (causing hyperandrogenism).

What are the symptoms?

Within all the people who go to their doctor with adrenal adenoma, 60% report having sharp abdominal pain, 41% report having anxiety and nervousness, and 41% report having sharp chest pain. The symptoms that are highly suggestive of adrenal adenoma are muscle swelling, low back weakness, elbow cramps or spasms, back weakness, and pus in sputum, although you may still have adrenal adenoma without those symptoms.
