Mass above right kidney.

Patient

Q: I recently had 2 MRI's done on my lumbar spine area. In several of the images on both MRI's there are images of a mass directly above my right kidney. I recently had 2 surgeries to remove lipomas on both sides of my spine, but was unaware if this could be related. There is a history of cancer in the family and I had a grandfather pass from complications in reference to a benign tumor on his adrenal gland. Is what I'm viewing in the image something to be concerned with or does it appear normal?
