In brief: Uncommon, glandular
Uncommon cancer of the adrenal glands (above kidneys).
May present with pain, or effects of abnormal production of a variety of hormones that affect blood sugar, sex hormones, stress responce, salt/fluid balance. Can be curable caught early enough; like most cancers, potentially deadly.

In brief: Depends
As with most cancers it depends on size, spread and involvement of surrounding tissue.
Also, when confined to the gland, its diagnosis can be tricky. Best prognosis is when it is confined to the gland and can be excised.
