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.

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
