Treatments for adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC)

The following are treatment options for adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC). The treatments used depend mainly on whether the cancer can be completely removed with surgery (is resectable) or can’t be completely removed with surgery (is unresectable). Stage 1, stage 2 and stage 3 ACCs are often resectable. Unresectable adrenal gland cancers include stage 4 ACC that has spread to distant organs (metastasized).

Your healthcare team will suggest treatments based on your needs and work with you to develop a treatment plan.
