Prolatinoma: If your prolactin level is that high and you have no masses in your pituitary gland or hypothalamus, i'd ask if they have checked for other sources where the prolactin can be created. This can be from tumors in the chest wall, fibroids, or other abnormal structures. You should find out what is causing the level to be that elevated because it isn't normal.
