What are symptoms of adrenal cancer in men and women?

ANSWER

Girls with too much estrogen can start their periods or start growing breasts at a very young age. Boys can make too much of that hormone also, and grow breasts. Men with too much estrogen may notice breast growth, impotence, or loss of sex drive. Women who make too many androgens may have excess body hair or a receding hairline, irregular periods, or a deeper voice. Women past menopause may have spotting.
