Abstract

In the presence of a history of cancer, adrenal masses are commonly, but not exclusively, metastases. Depending upon the status of the patient's ongoing cancer therapy, overall tumor burden, and performance score, adrenalectomy is a viable treatment option. Herein we review the prevalence, diagnostic evaluation, and selection for surgical treatment of adrenal metastases. Additional attention is paid to recent data supporting the safety and oncologic efficacy of laparoscopic adrenalectomy.
