Pathology
In brief: Adrenal or Pituitary
Excessive production of cortisol may result from a tumor in pituitary producing a hormone that stimulates the adrenal gland.
Lesions in the adrenal gland, hyperplasia, adenoma, carcinoma, may also cause increase in cortisol levels. You need to consult your doctor and/or an endocrinologist.
