An incidental adrenal tumour, described in this article as an “adrenal incidentaloma,” is an adrenal mass discovered during imaging that was not performed for suspected adrenal disease. These are being detected more frequently in an ageing population through the increased use of computed tomography (eg, computed tomography urogram, or colonoscopy) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans with enhanced resolution.

This article highlights the management of adrenal incidentalomas, collating recommendations from international guidelines, and is aimed at non-specialists.
