Had CT scan of kidneys to check for stones, etc. All that was found was small ovarian cyst. If i had adrenal tumor, etc., would it also have shown up?

In brief: Yes, it will shiow u

A ct scan of the abdomen would show the adrenal glands and any tumors in them, very well.

In brief: Yes.

You would usually be able to see an adrenal tumor on a ct done for stones.
Most adrenal tumors are benign and called "adenomas." red and white blood cells in the urine may be related to a bladder or kidney infection.
