Pheochromocytoma / Adrenal tumor?

Hello, I have recently discovered a slight lump / mass right below my right rib
cage. There is a dull ache when I press on it. I've had tests for
Pheochromocytoma because I've had symptoms of a Pheo and all have come back normal except only slightly raised Normetanephrine blood level. I have asked for an ultasound, CT scan, etc. of my abdomen, however, Endo says they must prove it biochemically first. Could you possibly see Pheochromocytoma or other Adrenal tumor protruding from your
abdomen? Your thoughts.
