Treatment & Drugs

Patients with pheochromocytoma often need to be treated medically prior to an attempt at surgery. Medical treatment may include control of hormonal symptoms with medication and intravenous hydration. Complete surgical removal of the tumor is usually the first goal. If a complete surgical removal is not possible then other treatment options are usually considered. These options may include:

  • Surgical resection to reduce tumor bulk
  • MIBG radiotherapy
  • Chemotherapy
  • Experimental medications
  • Supportive care for all patients
