Tumor



I found out that I have visual field deficits in both eyes. It looks like my tumor is acting up (at least, I hope it is my pit tumor and not a new one!)

   Oh no!  You've been through enough already!  I hope it's not another tumor. I'm so sorry. Are you going to have to do another MRI?

I just had them re-done. They are the same - no changes, so that is good that it is at least stable. I am not getting MRIs every 6 months.

I meant I get MRIs every 6 months... *sigh*

I started having those after the original diagnosis in 2004 but after a couple of years worth there was no change so, yes, thank the Lord you're ok!! I'm so thankful for you!! I'm not at all sure how much they'll want to start doing MRI's again on me. I'm about 3 months out since surgery again. We'll see. Go back to Dr in St louis next week. How's the weather there? It's beginning to improve here :o)

I have a lot of the same issues. I have Hashimoto's hypothyroidism and was diagnosed last year with a prolactinoma. I take cabergoline and last mri showed tumor is shrinking. However, in December I was diagnosed with Addison's disease also and take 20 mg of hydrocortisone. I recently had vision test and my optometrist is concerned because I have vision deficits in my nasal vision area not the area usually found in people with pituitary tumors. I am scheduled for more eye tests and then maybe another mri. Seeking any support, advice. I am feeling better since on cabergoline and hydrocortisone but still get headaches, dizzy, and very tired. I also take levoxyl for thyroid.

I have the size of a 9 benign tumor in the pituitary gland.  I have gained weight and cannot loose it.  Should I have this tumor removed or continue getting an MRI once a year to see if it grows.  Should I have surgery now?  I live in Naples, Fl and not sure if there is a better option for me?

Hello, I am curious how you are doing? The last (only) thing I know about your health was they found a small  benign tumor in your pituitary. What is your health status? I had an adenoma in my pituitary back in 2000. I had been having health problems for at least 4 1/2 years. I was diagnosed with cushings disease. If you get this I am interested how your health is.
