EVENTS ON MONDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 2002

TIME: All Day

EVENT: NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH STATE-OF-THE SCIENCE CONFERENCE: "Management of the Clinically Inapparent Adrenal Mass (Incidentaloma)." The adrenals are triangular glands that sit atop each kidney. They influence or regulate the body's metabolism, salt and water balance, response to stress, and other important functions by secreting a variety of hormones. Adrenal masses are among the most common tumors in humans, occurring in at least 3 percent of persons over age 50, according to recent estimates. Most adrenal masses cause no health problems. A small proportion, however, can lead to a number of serious hormonal diseases, and approximately one out of every 4,000 adrenal tumors is cancerous.
