Hello!

Welcome on HCM!

I understand your concern and would explain that the pituitary gland is the most important hormonal gland in our body. It regulated the balance of many hormones.

Your symptoms could be related to a hormonal imbalance. That is why I would recommend consulting with an endocrinologist and performing some hormone levels (TSH, LH, GH, GnRH, TRH, FSH, ACTH, cortisol, etc.).
A new MRI would be needed to evaluate the possible progression of the tumor.
Hope you will find this answer helpful!
Wishing all the best, Dr. Aida
