Aggresion is a possible early symptom of adrenal disease (increased testosterone)
As a diagnostic you could try lupron or suprelorin implants (suprelorin will take some time, up to several weeks for its effects to be seen), these will do no harm if its not adrenal.
My Sukie's aggresive grooming (of me) was cured within a week of suprelorin implant)
