Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

Left adrenal mass involving lower medial limb 11 mm in size. What does it mean?

Answered by Dr. Nagaraj


Welcome to icliniq.com.

It means that there is an abnormal mass in the adrenal gland. The adrenal gland is an essential organ which is located over the top of both kidneys. Mass in the adrenal gland is an abnormal condition and requires further investigations to make a definitive diagnosis. It could be adrenal adenoma, pheochromocytoma, adrenal carcinoma, could be a metastatic lesson from cancer elsewhere in the body. Less commonly, it could be a lipoma or tuberculosis. Mass in the adrenal gland is abnormal. I suggest you visit your doctor as soon as possible for further evaluation. I hope this information helps.
