Typically, an incidentaloma refers to an adrenal tumor. This workshop will focus on the prevalence such finding, its functional status, to review differences between a benign lesion and a malignant tumor and the need to follow-up. Finally, a review of other incidentalomas will be presented.


At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Review the definition of an incidentaloma
  • Know its prevalence and possible associated pathologies
  • Outline a biochemical work-up to assess functionality
  • Consider a follow-up
