My doctor is having me tested for these because I exhibited some symptoms that might indicate I have this. Where can I get more information on it? Thanks

Hi Anon

Thanks for your question!

It sounds like your doctor is having your Adrenal Glands tested. The testing may be for a tumor but also just to see if your adrenal system is functioning properly.

I hope this helps and thank you for your question!
