Description

Secondary malignant adrenal neoplasm is a type of cancer that has spread to the adrenal glands from another part of the body. It is usually caused by a primary cancer in the lungs, breast, or other organs that has metastasized to the adrenal glands. Symptoms of secondary malignant adrenal neoplasm can include abdominal pain, weight loss, fatigue, and changes in hormone levels. Treatment typically involves surgery to remove the affected adrenal gland, as well as chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy.
