Can you tell me how much time is the hospital recovery for adrenal gland cancer?

In brief: No set answer

There are many factors.
How big is the tumor? Is it secreting hormones (eg cortisol, dhea)? Will the surgeon remove it laparoscopically? Or through a regular incision (from the front or the back)? What is your overall health? Talk to your surgeon about this.
