Adrenal Tumor Surgery in Austin, TX

Dr. Steven Fass is an Austin-based physician who is skilled in removing adrenal tumors.

Adrenal tumors can be found on either of the adrenal glands, which are located on top of the kidneys. The adrenal glands are vital to your body’s health because they produce important hormones such as cortisol, epinephrine, and aldosterone, to name a few. These and other hormones help regulate blood pressure and sugar, respond to stress, burn fat, and more.  Adrenal tumors can be benign or cancerous.

Adrenal tumors are generally small enough to be removed through a minimally-invasive surgical procedure called laparoscopic adrenalectomy.

Some common symptoms of adrenal tumors are:

  • Dark stretch marks on the abdomen
  • Unusual weight gain, especially around the neck and abdomen
  • Irregular menstrual cycles
  • Enlarged breasts in men, due to increased estrogen
  • Increased facial hair in women, due to increased androgen
  • Moodiness
