Have they determined whether or not the increased hormones are the result of a tumor around the adrenal glands?

If it is a tumor, can it be removed?

Is there any type of medication that can counteract the increased level of hormones being produced by his body?

Hypergonadism is a condition where there is a hyperfunction of the gonads. It can manifest as precocious puberty, and is caused by abnormally high levels of testosterone or estrogen, crucial hormones for sexual intercourse. In some cases, it may be caused by a tumor, which can be malignant but mostly benign. Anabolic steroids may also be a major cause of high androgen and/or estrogen functional activity. Symptoms of the condition may include precocious puberty, rapid growth in adolescents, high libido, acne, excessive hairiness, and others.

I've never heard of it before. I'm interested in hearing more about how you and your son have been coping with this diagnosis.
