Treatment

A non-hormonal and benign small adenoma should be observed at least once a year. The doctor controls the size of the tumour according to the CT scan without contrast enhancement, cortisol and some other blood parameters. If there is no dynamics, then no treatment is needed. This type of adenoma occurs most often, while in other cases, surgery is used. The department's surgeons operate in a minimally invasive way, which is effective and safe. If the formation cannot be removed physically, conservative treatment is used.
