Adenoma

Adenomas are benign tumors starting in the epithelial tissue of a gland or gland-like structure. The epithelial tissue is the thin layer of tissue covering organs, glands, and other structures. Adenomas might also grow in the liver or the adrenal, pituitary, or thyroid gland. An Aldosterone-Producing Adenoma (APA) is one of the subtypes of primary aldosteronism.
