Could the small nodule in pituitary gland be a adenoma?

Sir , I am 33 yrs old woman, diabetic since last 7 yrs . recently I had some cold, visited ENT . He suggested me to undergo MRI SCan & some blood tests . My sugars are not under control since last 1-2 yrs . In this , latest blood tests , including thyroid are normal except my sugar . my menstrual periods are regular . I underwent cortisol test ( random ) at 04 pm , result -274 , normal they said. In this case, MRI Scan says : A small nodule in pituary gland which could be a adenoma... can you please clarify is it a adenoma?? Also will pranayam alone will cure this ??

Hi,

Pituitary adenoma needs evaluation and further treatment. Pranayam will not cure this. You should consult an endocrinologist and get hormone levels in blood tested. If the adenoma is small, only medicines are enough. However, if the adenoma is big, surgery may be needed.

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

Regards,
Dr. Sudhir Kumar, Neurologist
