    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):

    http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/pheochromocytoma.html

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