A 17-year-old female asked:

Could high prolactin levels be a cause of ovarian cancer?

No: This is worrisome though, especially if it's well above the reference range and there's no clear explanation. (Mild elevations mean little and the range is set so that several percent of healthies fall above.) Get with your physician about this.

A 36-year-old member asked:

Could high prolactin levels cause cancer?

Prolactin and cancer: It may be produced by a tumor or a cancer but a high prolactin level isn't likely to cause a cancer. Still, in women with very high levels who don't have regular menstrual cycles, the endometrial tissue can become abnormal.
