Treatment & Care
How are pheochromocytomas treated?
Treatment for a pheochromocytoma usually includes removing the tumor.
- Before removing the tumor, your child's physician may prescribe medications to control high blood pressure.
- Your child may have multiple tumors, and in order to be thorough, we will conduct an extensive evaluation to locate them before surgery.
Continuous medical follow-up may be required to monitor the development of future tumors.
