On-line Enduring Material Teaches on Adrenal Nodules

OSUWexnerbloglogo2014 On-line Enduring Material Teaches on Adrenal Nodules. Pheochromocytomas are fairly rare with about 1,000 cases in the U.S. every year but overall, adrenal tumors are common, and you can find one in about every 20 patients who undergo abdominal CT scans. Most of these adrenal tumors are benign and require no treatment but knowing which ones are consequential and which ones are inconsequential can be a challenge.
