Adrenocortical Carcinoma Treatment Market Segmented By type of cancer such as Localized Adrenocortical Carcinoma and Metastatic Adrenocortical Carcinoma with treatment such as Radiation Therapy, Interventional Therapy and Systemic Therapy


Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is a rare disease caused by cancerous growth in the adrenal cortex, which is the outer layer of the adrenal glands. The adrenal glands lie on top of the kidneys. They play a major role in the endocrine system, which is the system that produces and regulates hormones. The causes of primary adrenocortical carcinoma are unknown. However adrenocortical carcinoma can also be secondary cancer.

A secondary cancer is what happens when another form of cancer spreads to the adrenal glands. Adrenocortical carcinoma can occur at any age, but there is a bimodal distribution with a first peak at childhood between 1–6 years old and the second peak in the fourth to the fifth decade of life. During the past decade, collaborative efforts have been made to improve the ACC treatment.

Adrenocortical Carcinoma Treatment Market: Overview

Although it mainly occurs in adults, children are also affected by adrenocortical carcinoma. Based on data from the International Pediatric Adrenocortical Tumor Registry, the median age at which children develop adrenal carcinomas is 3.2 years. 60% are younger than four years, and 14% are older than 13 years. Historically, only about 30% of these malignancies are confined to the adrenal gland at the time of diagnosis.

However, recently, more adrenocortical carcinoma cases have been diagnosed in early states, most likely due to the widespread use of high-quality imaging techniques. The female-to-male ratio for adrenocortical carcinoma is approximately 2.5-3:1. The accumulation of data, especially in international registries, revealed the incidence of adrenal tumors to be higher in female individuals than had previously been thought, particularly in those aged 0-3 years and those over 13 years. Nonfunctional adrenocortical carcinomas are distributed equally between the sexes.
