1. Excessive Growth of Body Hair

Adrenal cancer causes a variety of symptoms that affect different parts of the body. Changes in hormone production cause most symptoms. In general, the excess production of hormones can lead to an increased growth of body hair, especially in the armpits, genitals, and bottom. The main hormones that can provoke such symptoms are androgen, estrogen, and cortisol. All of these are related to the adrenal gland. The amount of body hair growth depends on the size of the tumor as well as the severity of the cancer. If you are unsure about your body hair growth, consult your doctor.
