Yellow discharge from nostril, no odor, having dizziness, migraines, blurry vision. History of benign pituitary tumor. Treatment?

I bent over after a shower, and a yellow liquid leaked from my left nostril . At first I thought it was a nose bleed , but after inspection, the liquid was a bright yellow - like iodine . No odor, and not sticky. I have been having dizzy spells the last few days as well as a few migraines. The vision in my right eye has been blurry for the last 2 weeks also. I have a benign pituitary tumor , and I m hoping this is not a result of a change. An answer would be appreciated. Thank you!

Hello.
Thanks for writing to us.
A leakage of bright yellow liquid from the nose is suggestive of a CSF leak. This could be indicative of a change in the benign tumor you are having in your pituitary. You do need to consult a physician for evaluation.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
Regards,
