We offer many support programs and services to help you cope with an adrenal tumor diagnosis. From the moment you come to us for care, we’re here to support, encourage, and help you as long as you need us. When you’ve been treating and curing people with cancer as long as we have, you learn a few things along the way. We know how important it is to treat the psychological and emotional aspects of the disease as well as the physical ones, and we offer a variety of programs, classes, counseling, and age-related services to help you heal — in every way.
Medical treatment plans are vital to treating your cancer. Their sole purpose is to get you healthy again. But we also offer complementary services to soothe and heal not just your body but also your mind and spirit. Our Integrative Medicine Service can be a valuable part of your overall treatment plan. Programs include massage, acupuncture, hypnotherapy, meditation, visualization, music therapy, and nutritional counseling programs. Formal classes include yoga, tai chi, and chair aerobics.

Sometimes, you and your loved ones just need someone to talk to, someone who’s trained to help you make sense of your journey before, during, and after treatment. Our Counseling Center offers both individual and group counseling sessions to help you and your family cope with your disease. These sessions can be a healthy, productive way to work through the stress and anxiety that are sometimes a part of treatment and recovery. Learn more.
Help for Older Patients
Adrenal gland tumors are a challenge for anyone, regardless of age. But if you’re over 65, you may face challenges unique to your age group. At Memorial Sloan Kettering, we’re committed to providing cancer patients of all ages with the treatment, facilities, and support they need. Your treatment team will include healthcare professionals who have the specialized training and experience to effectively treat older patients. Every aspect of your care — diagnosis, treatment, recovery, and support — will be tailored to meet your particular needs. Learn more.
Supportive Care and Pain Management
At Memorial Sloan Kettering, we focus on all aspects of comprehensive cancer care, not just treating the disease. Our specialists in supportive care can help you cope with the side effects of therapy. These include pain, nausea, and fatigue. We can also help with the emotional and spiritual needs that often come up during and after cancer treatment.
If you are in pain during your treatments or even after they’re over, we have pain specialists who can help. We will build a plan that makes sense for you and your needs. Our experts can work with your doctor and pharmacists to give you solutions for both acute physical pain, which comes on suddenly, as well as chronic pain, which can linger. Our goal is to keep you as comfortable as possible.
