I have also had a Pheochromocytoma and had my left adrenal gland removed nearly two years ago.
Pheochromocytoma is usually an adrenal tumor with a very variable clinical symptomatology.
These include various types of malignant brain tumors, as well as leukemia and cancerous tumors of certain muscles (rhabdomyosarcoma), the adrenal glands (pheochromocytoma), or the kidneys (Wilms' tumor).
Patients with both MEN 2A and MEN 2B experience two main symptoms, medullary thyroid cancer (MTC) and a tumor of the adrenal gland medulla known as pheochromocytoma.
Pheochromocytoma is usually a benign (noncancerous) tumor that causes excessive secretion of adrenal hormones.
Pheochromocytoma in both types of MEN 2 can be cured by surgical removal of this slow growing tumor.
