Questions to Ask Your Doctor About Adrenal Tumors

  • What diagnostic tests and procedures are most appropriate for me? Why?
  • What evidence do you see that leads you to believe I have an adrenal tumor that is [benign or malignant]?
  • What could happen if we just observe the tumor?
  • What risks are involved in a treatment surgery?
  • How many of these treatments/surgeries have you done?
  • What will be involved in recovery? Will I have any lasting effects from the surgery?
