I'm a 24 year old woman. My prolactin is 48. I've been having hot flashes and headaches. My estrogen is low. Should I be worried?

It DOES need: Evaluation but I don't think you need to be super-worried.

A common cause of elevated prolactin is a BENIGN tumor in the pituitary gland (in the brain). Often medication can treat this; occasionally surgery is needed. See your doc ...Read more
