In brief: Yes.
The adrenal glands are situated atop the kidneys, which are positioned against the back body wall on either side.
One common symptom of adrenal tumors is flank pain, but they can also cause many other symptoms affecting multiple body systems because the adrenal glands play many roles in the regulation of important biological processes. If the pain worsens, changes, or moves, see your doctor.

In brief: Yes
A tumor on the adrenal gland is located towards the back and side.
Therefore hurting where you say. If a cancer from another origin had spread there, we sometimes give palliative radiation to this area to alleviate the pain. Talk with your oncologist.
