Brief Answer:
Better known as incidentaloma

Detailed Answer:
Dear Sir, Hi! Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

Adrenal masses non functional, diagnosed as mere incident are called incidentalomas.

You have not mentioned the size though, but if less than 10 mm, they can be just followed, but if bigger, they need a biopsy/ Fnac. if non-malignant, nonfunctional, not suppressing adrenal function, then no further intervention required.

Let me know if I could assist you further.
