I was diagnosed with a very small pituitary adenoma, and simply want to know how often do such benign tumors lead to acromegaly?

It depends : How do you FEEL? Little adenoids are common. Is your HCG level up when suppression is attempted? Serum IGF-1 been checked? How do your clothes fit? A tiny prolactinoma can ruin a man’s sex Life despite normal testosterone. Or nothing can happen..
