You have not mentioned site of biopsy .Whatever may be site of biopsy this report shows malignancy there which has most probably come from adrenocortical area .it means that cancer has spread and has reached the site of biopsy. Adrenocortical area is situated just above kidney . Consult your oncologist for further guidance.

Orthopaedic Surgeon Dr. Sunil Kumar Srivastava's  Response
This report indicates that your adrenal gland is is situated above the kidneys and its basic function is maintenance of electrolyte and water balance and production of hormones for general metabolism etc.
report shows that spread may have occurred to surrounding areas also.
You must seek help of both endocrinologist and an oncologist
