Treatment Options and Choices for ACC
Overview for Treating ACC
The most common and most utilized treatment options for dealing with ACC are surgical resection of the identified tumor and radiation therapy. At this point in time no single chemotherapy treatment plan has shown itself to be effective for any significant number of ACC patients, though some patients have had limited success with a few types of chemo and in clinical trials. Depending upon the size and location of their tumors, some patients will choose surgery alone, some choose radiation treatment alone, and many have a combination of surgery followed up with radiation.
