Stage I Adrenocortical Carcinoma

Treatment of stage I adrenocortical carcinoma may include the following:

  • Surgery (adrenalectomy). Nearby lymph nodes may also be removed if they are larger than normal.
  • A clinical trial of a new treatment.

Use our clinical trial search to find NCI-supported cancer clinical trials that are accepting patients. You can search for trials based on the type of cancer, the age of the patient, and where the trials are being done. General information about clinical trials is also available.

Stage II Adrenocortical Carcinoma

Treatment of stage II adrenocortical carcinoma may include the following:

Stage III Adrenocortical Carcinoma

Treatment of stage III adrenocortical carcinoma may include the following:

  • Surgery (adrenalectomy). Nearby lymph nodes may also be removed if they are larger than normal.
  • A clinical trial of a new treatment.

Stage IV Adrenocortical Carcinoma

Treatment of stage IV adrenocortical carcinoma may include the following as palliative therapy to relieve symptoms and improve the quality of life:

  • Chemotherapy or combination chemotherapy.
  • Radiation therapy to bones or other sites where cancer has spread.
  • Surgery to remove cancer that has spread to tissues near the adrenal cortex.
  • A clinical trial of chemotherapy, biologic therapy, or targeted therapy.
