Activity Description

Adrenal adenomas are benign neoplasms that originate from the adrenal cortex. They can be categorized as either nonsecreting or functional. Nonfunctional adenomas and those with mild hormonal secretion may not produce noticeable symptoms and can remain asymptomatic. However, adenomas that exhibit significant hormonal activity often present with characteristic symptoms of Cushing syndrome, primary hyperaldosteronism, or hyperandrogenism. Evaluation of an adrenal adenoma requires a comprehensive approach involving imaging and hormonal workup. Small adenomas that are hormonally inactive generally require routine follow-up examinations without immediate intervention. Adrenalectomy is the preferred treatment for hormonally active adenomas. Overall, the prognosis for patients with adrenal adenomas is excellent if the condition is promptly diagnosed and treated. The complication rate is generally low. This activity aims to review the evaluation and management of adrenal adenomas and emphasizes the roles of the healthcare team in caring for patients with this condition.


Target Audience

This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of physicians, physician associates, nurses, pharmacists, and nurse practitioners.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, the learner will be better able to:

  • Screen patients with suspected adrenal adenoma through appropriate diagnostic tests, including imaging modalities (eg, CT and MRI scans) and hormonal assays for the evaluation and management of adrenal adenomas.
  • Differentiate between nonfunctional and hormonally active adrenal adenomas associated with conditions such as Cushing syndrome, primary hyperaldosteronism, or hyperandrogenism by assessing the size, hormonal activity, and potential complications of the tumors.
  • Elucidate the importance of appropriate treatment decisions and follow-up strategies, including adrenalectomy, for hormonally active adrenal adenomas to alleviate symptoms and prevent associated morbidity in patients at risk.
  • Collaborate with a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals to provide comprehensive treatment strategies and follow-up care for patients with adrenal adenomas through effective communication.
