Elaine's Story


I just had an MRI and a CATscan and was found to have a 2cm tumor on my adrenal gland. My doc said not to worry and check it again in 3 months. After that I started checking on line myself and read about Cushing's my symptoms seem classic.... But maybe I'm reading too much into it. I re-approached my doc and had him do the 24 hour urine it came back within the normal ranges.

Should I let my fears rest or ask more questions. I am extremely overweight, diabetic and have gained abiut 100 in the last 5 years. I also have to me what appears to be a fatty area could be described as a hump on the top of my back.

Any suggestions gratefully accepted
