My dog has never had one, but I have. It's not a fun tumor, it caused me to have horrible hot flashes, my blood pressure to spike out of control, catecholamines to be produced indiscriminately, heart palpatations, and sever headaches among other things. It played hell with my quality of life and was very life threatening towards the end. Those types of tumors are not something to be played around with and I would not recommend fooling around with holisitc medicine and hope for the best.
If it's simply a tumor then removing the affected adrenal glad should be the end of it. If it's cancer then it's much more serious and surgery is much less likely to provide a cure. In humans most adrenal tumors are just tumors and it be cancerous is rare, I"m not sure if it's the same in dogs.
I'm sorry that your dog is going through such a hard time, and hope that he gets better.
