Can person be born without gallbladder? 48 yr old f had 2 CT scans say I have no g/b found cyst on adrenal gland is this dangerous

Very important that this is known if you are evaluated for abdominal pain since not seeing the gallbladder can mean a scarred inflamed gb requiring removal. If the gb is absent and the surgeon doesn't know there can be severe damage done to the bile ducts during laparoscopic surgery for gb removal.

Endocrine gland: The adrenal glands sit on top of the kidneys and their main function is to make hormones.

These hormones circulate all around the body to affect the target organs and tissues.

Can you tell me anything about an adrenal gland tumor?

Can you tell me anything about an adrenal gland tumor?

Variables: Hi. 2 big issues: 1) is it benign or malignant, and 2) is it overproducing a hormone or not? My advice is to see an endocrinologist comfortable with diagnosing adrenal tumors. It's a complex field, and I'm too far away to do it for you! ;-) Hormone tumors could be Cushing's, aldosteronoma, or pheochromocytoma. The work up will include CT scan attenuation. Don't ignore it or put it off. Good luck
