Can breast enlargement with milk be due to pituitary tumor?

In your opinion do you believe there s a chance I have a pituitary tumor? My symptoms include: breast milk, dry skin, head aches, fatigue, and sudden weight gain. I don t have problems with a menstrual cycle because I have had a hysterectomy. Also the breast that has milk is 3 times the size of the other one.

Hello,

It could be due to conditions like duct entasis.

A pituitary tumor is unlikely.

Consult a general surgeon and get evaluated. A detailed evaluation is required to find out the exact cause of your symptoms.

You have to get a serum prolactin, mammogram and MRI for further assessment.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Shinas Hussain,
