Introduction to Adrenal Cancer
The more frequent and widespread use of cross-sectional imaging has resulted in an increase of the detection of adrenal lesions in patients with no suspicion of adrenal disease. Imaging along with clinical evaluation is critical for the characterization of an incidentaloma as benign or malignant. In contrast to incidentalomas, malignant adrenal tumors are very rare and comprise adrenocortical carcinomas, pheochromocytomas/paragangliomas, and metastatic lesions.
