What are the symptoms of macroadenoma ?

symptoms of microadenoma 7mm. I see a white discharge on the breast whenever I take a shower. Why is that? I know my prolactin levels are high and that could be the reason but why whenever I take a shower?? and I get these horrible headaches and restlessness in the legs. Is it because of the tumor? I will be very appreciated by the any answer I recieve.

Hi,
You have a small pituitary tumour called prolactinoma.Its caused due to high prolactin levels.The symptoms are irregular menses,galactorrhea(discharge from breast).Usually you would be put on medications for about 3-4 weeks.But If the MRI shows increase in the tumor it may need to be removed.If you are on meds,continue as advised.repeat a MRI after 4-6 weeks.

This was very helpful thank you. I was on medication but I really dont think the medication worked I tried the dose twice but still I get this discharge. Also, I get easliy tired alot just by doing a small chore and that might be due to lack of iron but recently I was sick with very bad cold so they test me for mono which they said I didnt have and the iron was ok. Also, I have problems of my nerves I guess not sure how to describe it but like when I wash dishes my finger will get stuck for alil bit before I can move it..I dont know if that has anything to do with that tumor or me being double jointed very badly. But I do get alot of headaches as well like really bad!! and pressure in the eyes..not sure why that is either. Thank you so much for replying.

The nerve problem shouldnt be associated with this.Neuropathy is a symptoms which is very different and has a number of causes for which you have to be tested again.Its possible that your immune system is weak due to the infections so you are tired.You should get a complete physical check up to detect any problems at the earliest.
