New here. Scared and confused.

Two years ago an adrenal gland adenoma showed up on a ct scan. 

Two weeks ago I had an abdominal ct scan done and this is what the report said.

left adrenal nodule is present which is most consistent with an adrenal adenoma based on Hounsfield units.

Ok. One of the Drs. at my regular pcp consulted with another radiologist and a urologist and they are setting me up for another ct scan or MRI. I've been asking why and no one would tell me! Finally, almost 2 weeks later, his nurse calls and says a new test is needed because it's changed. I asked how she said she didn't know and Dr said if I have any more questions I have to schedule an appt. I'm worried sick.

Adenomas may stay adenomas for a long time, including all your life... but to get a better assessment, an MRI is the best indication.

I compiled a complete list of every mri and ct scan from the last two years. They all mention,it in a very different way. I'm trying to make this a good thing. Here it is:

10/03/19

left

adrenal nodule is present which is most consistent with an adrenal adenoma based on

Hounsfield units.

July 2017

Small left adrenal nodule,

indeterminate but statistically likely an adrenal adenoma.

8/07/2017 MRI

Adrenal glands show some stable nodular

thickening. 

There is some signal loss in the areas of adrenal

nodularity suggesting adenomas.

8/20/2017

There is a small left adrenal gland nodule not

significantly changed.
