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.
