CT scan shows solid nodule on left adrenal gland. Should I go for another washout image ?

In 2010 I had a CT scan . The finding indicated on my left adrenal gland a 19 mm solid nodule measuring 61 HU. Should I request a washout image since it has not yet been performed? In addition to this inquiry should I also request functionality of my left adrenal gland be determined biochemically? Sorry I did not realize this site requires a nominal fee. Sorry for wasting your precious time. Have a great day.

You can get your adrenal nodule assessed for change in size through an ultrasound scan. This is convenient, less expensive and radiation free.

I strongly suggest you talk to a radiologist and discuss your 2010 reports with him in detail along with any blood tests.
If ultrasound is in conclusive then a CT scan can be thought about with wash out imaging.

Hope this helps.
