mass on adrenal gland, what does this mean?

What effects does a mass on the adrenal glands have on a person?
An MRI of my abdomen showed a mass on an adrenal gland. What are the symptoms and what does this mean?
I have been diagnosed with low testosterone. Could there be a connection? Any insight would be very helpful!

Yes there could definitely be a connection.
Do you have symptoms?
I think you live in So Cal? If so, there is a great doc named Theodore Friedman in LA. You can find him on web.
If you are having symptoms etc., I would not mess around, get to a doc that knows what they are doing.

Look up "adrenal adenoma".
A mass can mean many things and very often it means nothing.
What symptoms are you having? High BP, low potassium,
anxiety, flushing? Why was the MRI done?

I had a "mass" show up on a CT scan done because of high blood pressure and low potassium levels. Then I had other testing to determine I had Conn's Syndrome which meant the "tumor" was producing Aldosterone causing my electrolyte imbalance and uncontrollable hypertension

I have had surgery and many symptoms I had have disappeared along with my BP now normal without meds

Research as much as possible
