In brief: Surgery

Remove it. Phentolamine and Phenoxybenzamine are medications that are often used preoperatively to temporarily control symptoms before it's resected.

In brief: Surgery

Removing the adrenal is the appropriate treatment.
These tumors produce hormones that increase the blood pressure to dangerous levels, so it is important that you take medication to block the potential hormone surge. This blockage usually takes 1-2 weeks before the surgery can be done safely. Most pheochromocytomas can be removed laparoscopically, unless very large or suspicious for cancer.
