Brief Answer:
Adrenal adenoma

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thank you for asking

If you have an adrenal gland adenoma, you have a tumor on your adrenal gland, but it’s not cancer
If you have a nonfunctioning tumor, you probably won’t need any treatment
If you are symptomatic you may be able to get medicine that prevents hormones from working or lowers their levels so you won’t have any symptoms, for that you should consult endocrinologist

Best regards
