In brief: Watch size/change

Nodule(s) on the adrenals are often discovered incidentally during a ct scan or other procedure.
Most are benign lumps. But some are not. Questions to consider: is this adrenal lump making excess hormone, causing a variety of different conditions? Do you have hypertension, diabetes, "spells"? If the adrenal nodule is relatively big, or if it is getting bigger, it should come out.
