What do my MRI scan test results indicate?
I have elevated serum plasma free normetanephrines and a new MRI result that shows "the pituitary gland is mildly enlarged, measuring 9 mm in midline height. The gland may be slightly larger when compared to the prior study".
My big question for you is this. These results were sent to a non-surgical Endocrine doctor 2 hours away in XXXXXXX Ohio and a Head and Neck Oncologist where i live in XXXXXXX Ohio. Both of which coincedentally, gave me "work-in" appointments on the same day! Can you help me decide (before tomorrow) which doctor I should see for my circumstances. I can provide you much more information if you need it?
Thank you- XXXXXXX
Thanks for your query.
It seems your problems are mostly endocrine in nature at present. The pituitary is also part of endocrine system and it does not appear much concerning as per the MRI report.
I don't think head and neck oncologist has anything to offer right now. So I suggest you go ahead with walk-in appointment of endocrinologist.
Hope this helps.
