What is adrenal gland?
It's an important part of your hormonal system
Hello XXXXXXX Thanks for coming back to HealthCareMagic.
Your adrenal glands are small triangular organs which reside, one on each side of the body, above the kidneys.
They produce many hormones which help regulate glucose and salt levels in the blood as well as help with stress situations and. One major hormone made by the adrenal gland is Cortisol, which is the bodies natural stress hormone. It is release to help the body cope with physical stress.
I hope this helps,
Old report in august mentions a left adrenal gland , which we were told was not a metastases.
New report says - new left adrenAl nodule. Would this b the same one or a new one?
New report mentions a comparison
Hello, well, the language used here is very ambiguous, but given what has been typed in the report, I would have to deduce that the new report is mentioning a NEW nodule in addition to the one that was originally seen in the Left Adrenal.
If you could upload the scans themselves, i could do the comparison myself and confirm it.
You will need to follow-up with your Oncologist for a good answer
Hello XXXXXXX I'm so sorry. I wish I was a qualified Oncologist. But my experience with Adrenal Metastasis and its management is limited.
From the history you've have mentioned, I can imagine that radio-ablation of the nodule might be an option. But again, an Oncologist would be your best bet for high quality information.
