Is a micro adenoma in the pituitary curable?

Microadenoma: The MRI is very sensitive, and it can pick up tiny "lumps" in many people. The presence of a tiny adenoma does not necessarily mean there is a problem. If it is making excess hormone (eg. prolactin) then treatment directed at the hormone is important. Theoretically, "big" pituitary tumors were once small, but most micro's don't get much bigger. See your Endocrinologist.
