Endo evaluation: If you're not nursing, high prolactin levels should be evaluated by an endocrinologist. Other pituitary hormones will need to be checked and you will need a MRI of the brain and pituitary gland. If this is a prolactinoma, you will likely be a candidate for medical treatment as long as there isn't anything surgically concerning on mri.
