Summary about Pheochromocytoma in English

A pheochromocytoma is a rare, usually non-cancerous (benign) tumor that develops in the adrenal gland. Usually, this type of tumor affects one of the two adrenal glands, as well as both. If you have pheochromocytoma, the tumor releases hormones that cause episodic or persistent hypertension. Untreated pheochromocytoma can cause serious or even fatal damage to other systems in the body, particularly the cardiovascular system. Most pheochromocytomas patients have age between 20 and 50 years, but the tumor can develop at any age. Surgical treatment to remove a pheochromocytoma is available.
