Hi, you seem to have a secretory adenoma of pituitary (prolactinoma) and the treatment can be an endoscopic or otherwise transnasal surgery for this. The other option can be radiation and use of gamma knife to protect the optic nerve is recommended. The medicine you are taking is to keep your prolactin levels low. Regards
