  34. Although the clinical is sugestive for Phecrhomocytoma, the CT is n`t typical for a PCC.
    The aspect of the CECT arterial phase right renal mass is rather a cystic lesion because: it dosent enhance at all, well deliniated, water density. PCC should be located in the K upper pole : this is mediorenal, near the right renal vein.
    I say lets not jump with the conclusions and ask for the other laboratory tests.
