For this analysis, GlobalData epidemiologists used data available from Orphanet to construct the 10-year epidemiological forecast for the diagnosed prevalent cases of CS, Cushing's disease, ectopic ACTH CS, adrenal adenoma CS, and adrenal carcinoma
CS in the 6MM.
The report also includes a 10-year epidemiological forecast for the diagnosed prevalent cases of CS, Cushing's disease, ectopic- adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) CS, adrenal adenoma CS, and adrenal carcinoma
CS segmented by age (18 to =85 years) and sex in these markets.
Primary adrenal carcinoma
(ACC) is a rare, aggressive malignancy arising from the adrenal cortex.
The main differential diagnostic considerations are adenoma, metastasis, and solid masses, such as adrenal carcinoma
Even though many aggressive tumors such as adrenal carcinoma
share some of these findings, diagnosis of GN should be considered in the presence of all or most of these findings (3).

The panel chose to focus on what is known: that the overall risk of an incidentally found mass being a primary adrenal carcinoma
appears to be about 0.

The radiographic features of the adrenal lesion were consistent with primary adrenal carcinoma
or possibly a metastasis from the renal primary.

The minor responses were seen in a patient with metastatic parotid cancer (21% reduction at 14 weeks) and a patient with metastatic adrenal carcinoma
(18% reduction at 19 weeks).
