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.
