Chemotherapy for adrenal cancer

Chemotherapy may be used in combination with surgery and radiation therapy to treat advanced-stage adrenal cancer. Chemotherapy drugs work to either destroy cancer cells, or impede their ability to grow and reproduce.

At our hospitals, medical oncologists work closely with adrenal cancer patients to determine if chemotherapy is an appropriate treatment option. Among the chemotherapy drugs used to treat adrenal cancer are:

  • Mitotane
  • Cisplatin
  • 5-fluorouracil
  • Etoposide
  • Vincristine
  • Doxorubicin
  • Paclitaxel
