What Doctor specializing in Adrenal issues

I have an adrenal mass and would like to know what type of doctor specializes in this issue.

Hi there: I have an adrenal mass also (as well as a kidney mass). I see a nephrologist who has ordered tests on the adrenal gland - Two 24 hour urine specimens - one for cortisol levels and another for adrenal function levels. Just got the results today and both tests were normal. Hope this info helps.

I believe an endocrinologist will deal with issues associated with the adrenal glands. Endos deal with most hormones, so that would be a good place to start.

Thank you.
I do not believe mine is on my kidney. I will look into your suggestion after I see an endocrinologist.
