What is the differential diagnosis for an incidentally discovered adrenal mass? Evidence-based answer: In patients with incidentally discovered adrenal masses on imaging and no history of malignancy or signs and symptoms of adrenal disease, the differential diagnosis includes nonsecreting adenomas (75 percent-85 percent), cortisolsecreting adenomas (9 percent), and a number of uncommon causes (less than 5 percent total) such as pheochromocytomas, aldosteronomas, adrenal cortical carcinomas, myelolipomas, cysts, hematomas, ganglioneuromas, and metastases (SOR: C, retrospective case series).
