Treating Cushing syndrome

The goal of treating Cushing syndrome is to reduce the negative effects of excess cortisol activity

This often results in the improvement of health issues associated with Cushing syndrome (also known as hypercortisolism).

Treatment options include:

An icon of a surgical knife

Surgery—to remove the tumor (or nodule) that is causing the production of too much cortisol

An icon of a radiation monitor

Radiation—to reduce the tumor (or nodule)

Medication—to help manage signs and symptoms of the disease

Surgery is often the first treatment for people with Cushing syndrome. However, Korlym® can help if surgery is not an option or if symptoms begin to return after surgery.
