HEVIA SUAREZ, M. et al. Management of adrenal mass: What urologist should know. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2010, vol.34, n.7, pp.586-591. ISSN 0210-4806.

Adrenal incidentaloma´s prevalence is rising because of the big volume of radiologic explorations that we daily do. No comprehensive guidelines have been published by professional societies to guide the evaluation of patients with adrenal incidentalomas. All adrenal masses should be inspected for malignancy or hypersecreting disorders. In our point of view, adrenal surgery should be performed by the urologist, because it's the medical speciality which knows the best this anatomical region. The objective of this review is to present the main points that the urologist may know in the management of adrenal masses. Together with the department of Endocrinology of our hospital, we describe the main studies to perform in front of adrenal mass diagnosis and the current therapeutical diagram utilized in our center.

Keywords : Incidentaloma; Diagnosis; Presurgical management.
