What are the chances of someone w/prolactinoma having men1 with no family history of men1?

Spontaneous mutation: Although some men1 is familial, a lot of it is not, presumably a spontaneous mutation. On the other hand, prolactinomas are common. Men1 is rare. A lot of people have heartburn... Not necessarily a gastrinoma. The work up of your condition needs to be done carefully.
