Could the solid structure in the right adrenal gland be causing Gall bladder problems?

I have recently bee n having symptoms of gallbladder problems. An ultrasound showed a 2.2 cm by 2.3 cm by 1.0 cm solid structure in the right adrenal gland. I followed up with a CT scan with the same findings. I am scheduled for a MRI next week. Apparently the GB study was negative. What am I looking at?

Hello

Your finding suggests mass in right adrenal gland.It may be due to both benign or malignant reasons.
It is not expected to cause gall bladder problems.
It may be due to many reasons like adenoma,phaeochromocytoma,metastasis etc.This need clinical correlation and further investigations.
Adrenal adenoma is the most common benign lesion.
Besides routine investigations you may need contrast CT scan of abdomen and chest X-ray (PA view).
CT guided biopsy can be done if needed.
Treatment depend upon findings.

Get well soon.
Take Care
