I don't know what I can contribute to your question, but I am quite young and have recently found out that I have an abnormality in my pituitary as well. It's rather small so they said that they would just monitor it every three months. When I saw the endo...-doctor, he told me that my prolactin levels were entirely too high. (Prolactin is the hormone that the pituitary releases). I didn't have any symptoms at all (probably because they caught it so early). They simply perscribed medicine to control my prolactin levels and I must go to the doctor every three months for a checkup and every year for an MRI. I did a lot of research before I went to see the endo...-doctor. And I still am because if it grows, I will have to undergo radiology.
hi,, im 17, and have a tumor in my pituitary gland. my prolactin (the hormone that produces milk) was very high. i have found that normal levels are around mid 20s, and i was tested to be at a level of 56. i was hardly having symptoms at all, i occasionaly got a small headache, and i lactated. i also may not be able to have children, but it depends on if it is removed. as of right now, my body is, shall i say, tricked into thinking i am already pregnant. all my endocrinologist told me, was that they could try to shrink it, or they could remove it. i was put on bromocriptine/parlodel to shrink it, but i think id rather live with the tumor. i looked it up alot, and there are a number of things that can be wrong when abnormalities are present, some more severe than others. good luck to you, and i hope everything turns out allright.
