Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
You are Probably having a Renal Cyst, which is causing bleeding in Urine. usually cysts which are not causing symptoms are left untreated, since you have Bleeding in Urine (Hematuria), may be you should get a CT scan done to look for its size and shape after consulting a Urologist. He shall examine you and discuss the treatment Options, may be you should get it removed.

Wish you Good Health, Take Care.

Hello
Welcome to health care magic forum
Pheochromocytoma is a well known tumor of adrenal gland known for causing hypertension How you came to know of cyst in the adrenal gland .A cyst in the adrenal gland definitely need complete investigation & proper treatment .As adrenal tumors are known to cause hypertension..So CT /MRI abdomen along with certain blood test are required for adrenal tumor.So in opinion you must consult some endocrinologist for further evaluation
Wish you good health

Hello, I have an adrenal cyst on my right adrenal gland. This has been there that we know of for nearly 20 years and have been monitoring it on a 2 yearly basis. 14 years ago a laporoscopy was done to knock the top off (it was 12cm & had bled into itself), took 1 litre of blood from it. It has now bled into itself again and is 11x11x14cm. I m aware surgery is required. I would like to know does the adrenal gland need to be removed and if so, does the kidney need to be removed also??? Thank you

my dad has had extremely high blood pressure up to 237/136. they finally ran renin aldostrone levels and the results came back extremely low. He does have a mass on his adrenal glad that show growth from 1cm and now at 3 cm. The urologist is contacting him today. He has already had am amgiogram and other blood work that came up negative. Thyroid test just came back fine. Other symptoms sweating, tingling of face when blood pressure increases, fatigue, urination infrequencies, darkened urine. Is this serious and do you believe surgery will be required to remove mass. He had his CT scan again yesterday.

Dr. Oz, I know you're show is geared mostly towards women but I really am in dyer need of help. I'm a 22 year old male and I'm currently taking two 20mg instant release Adderalls a day. My blood pressure is normal on a daily basis, but high blood pressure and heart disease does run in my family. My concern is in regards to Erectile Disfunction. It is a real self confidence killer! My penis doesn't get fully erect when I'm about to have sex, its hard but not where it can stay up the air hard..excuse the reference. Also some other times it will get hard, but it will not stay that way for long amounts of time. Does anyone know why this could be? I also have trouble staying hard. For example if it slips out, there is a switch of positions,or the slightest distraction, it wont remain hard. I take adderall but don't notice a difference in this when I take it and when I don't. I exercise regularly (4-5x a week) and eat relatively healthy(for a college student). I am stressed a lot and i know that could be a cause of my problems. but does anyone have any ideas? Also is it to early for someone my age (22) to take pills such as viagra or cialis? What are the long term side effects?
