An adrenal tumor called an aldosteronoma is a common cause of aldosteronism. Aldosteronism is characterized by excessive levels of the adrenal hormone aldersterone, which can cause hypertension and other abnormalities. Aldosteronomas are small, benign tumors of the adrenal glands. Once a patient has been diagnosed with aldosteronism, various tests can determine whether it is caused by an aldosteronoma. Surgery is the best treatment, and laparoscopic surgery can minimize hospital stays and recovery periods.
