It is rare: Cure by surgery is some cases, chemotherapy ortho-para dddd and aminogluthamide are used as palliatives. Most tumors produce excess.Coticosteroids, and that produces cushing-like state.

Depend on the stage: The main treatment for localized adrenal cancer is to remove the tumor. After surgery their might be a role for a treatment called mitotane that could help reduce the risk of relapse. For adrenal cancer that spread to other organs then chemotherapy plus mitotane is the main treatment. This is very rare cancer and best treated in consultation with expert team of doctors.
