Adrenal tumours

The adrenal gland is an organ that produces various hormones. Adrenal tumours can be benign or malignant. Symptoms can occur, but not necessarily. In addition, little can be said about the nature of the tumour due to the symptoms.

Some tumours release more substances that in turn can trigger strong palpitations, blood sugar swings and anxiety. Others change the hormonal balance in such a way that it can lead to obesity with diabetes and skin lesions.
