Hi Anon

Thanks for your post - are you asking for yourself or a loved one? 

Adenocarcinoma is cancer of the glandular tissues, often found in the lungs (and often from smoking), the pancreas and the prostate. 

Adeno carcinomas can also be from glands like sweat glands in the skin or hair and usually found on the skin on the face or on the head.
