Learn About Adrenal Cancer

What is the definition of Adrenal Cancer?
Adrenal cancer is a rare form of cancer that occurs due to abnormal and uncontrolled cell growth in the adrenal glands (small glands that sit above each kidney). In most cases, the underlying cause of the condition is unknown. However, certain genetic conditions such as multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2, Li-Fraumeni syndrome, Von Hippel-Lindau syndrome, neurofibromatosis type I, and Carney complex are associated with an increased risk of developing adrenal tumors and cancer.

A Randomized Registry Trial of Adjuvant Mitotane vs. Mitotane With Cisplatin/Etoposide After Primary Surgical Resection of Localized Adrenocortical Carcinoma With High Risk of Recurrence (ADIUVO-2 Trial)

Summary: This phase III trial studies how well mitotane alone works compared to mitotane with cisplatin and etoposide when given after surgery in treating patients with adrenocortical cancer that has a high risk of coming back (recurrence). Cortisol can cause the growth of adrenocortical tumor cells. Antihormone therapy, such as mitotane, may lessen the amount of cortisol made by the body. Drugs used in ch...
