Adrenal cancer care


At City of Hope, we know that adrenal cancer is a complex disease that requires a multi-faceted approach.
That’s why we work with you, and one another, to develop a comprehensive treatment plan personalized to your individual needs, preferences and goals. Our cancer experts are trained and experienced in all stages of adrenal cancer, from diagnosing the disease, to treating it and managing its side effects, to survivorship. We involve you at every step, so you can make informed decisions about the road ahead. With our patient-centered approach, we treat each patient like we’d want our own family to be treated.

How are we different?

Quality of life-focused treatments

Your multidisciplinary team of oncologists and supportive care clinicians work with you to develop a treatment plan tailored to your diagnosis and needs. Multiple treatment options or treatment combinations may be used for your type adrenal cancer, depending on the stage of the disease, how aggressive it is and other factors. If you have a small tumor, for example, a minimally invasive procedure known as laparoscopy—using a thin, lighted tube with a camera attached inserted via small incisions—may be an option.

Comprehensive team approach

Your adrenal cancer care team works all under one roof. That means you have access to state-of-the-art cancer treatments and supportive care services all in one location. Your treatment plan is coordinated by a care manager dedicated to orchestrating your schedule, communicating with the rest of your care team, getting your questions answered and helping you access your test results in a timely manner. Your care team may also include a medical oncologist, surgical oncologist, radiation oncologist, oncology nurses and a variety of supportive care providers.

Whole-person care

Our doctors work with supportive care providers to deliver evidence-informed approaches designed to address the symptoms of your disease and the side effects of treatment. That’s what integrative care is about: keeping you strong so you can better tolerate your treatments and maintain your quality of life. Our supportive care services include nutritional support to help develop a diet plan to help you stay nourished, while pain management physicians offer medication and non-narcotic approaches to help you keep your pain in check. And our spiritual support and behavioral health providers help support your mental and emotional health before, during and after your treatment.

Access to clinical trials

Clinical trials are critical tools researchers and doctors use to determine the safety and effectiveness of new drugs and therapies. At City of Hope is advanced or difficult to treat. Our cancer doctors and researchers will work with you to determine whether you qualify for a trial and, if so, help you enroll.

Before I found City of Hope, I was so confused by the differing cancer diagnoses and treatment options. I would recommend City of Hope to any family member or friend. The hospital was the answer to our prayers."
