Re: Pheochromocytoma ... is anyone familiar?

My Dad,

A Pheo is a tumor of the adrenal glands and is almost always benign.
The classic symptoms are hypertension, abnormal sweats, "panic" attacks and headache.

In most cases, once a pheo is removed surgically, the hypertension and all other symptoms resolve.

Here's some info for you that will help give you a good overview:

From MEDLINE..( check out the PDF link there from the National Institutes of Health):

And also from Medline here is another link from the American Urological Society that is very helpful:
