Bleeding: Really, the only sign you would have would be some blood in the stool, but if it were a massively large adenoma, then you could have symptoms typical of bowel obstruction, such as bloating, cramping, and emesis. I doubt this would occur. Good luck. ...Read more

Would more that just height growth be seen if I have poss pituitary adenoma? I have no other sumptoms or phys changes. 2 MRIs showed normal pituitary.

Acromegaly: A pituitary adenoma that secretes excess growth hormone does not cause increase in height in an adult who has already completed growth phase (after the growth plates fuse). Instead, growth hormone causes thickening of the bones, which leads to increases in glove and shoe size, and characteristic coarsening of the facial features. A pituitary adenoma that causes this would be visible on MRI ...Read more

Please forgive me: Your pituitary adenoma isn't the cause of your anxiety or chronic pain. Fixate on it, and you'll never find or address the real causes. Lots of people have these little things. As a young man, I was in a series of difficult living situations that affected how I felt without there being any organic pathology; with a doctor's 20/20 hindsight I recovered thanks to escaping and learning new skills. ...Read more

I got diagnosed with a 5mm pituitary adenoma (non functioning) 2 years ago, now they say it can't be seen on an mri yet I still have my symptoms, like migraines often, constant headache and sickness. Help?!

Likely not related: Your migraines are not related to the pituitary lesion, which may have merely represented a non-functioning adenoma. If you have constant headaches, would advise starting a preventative agent, and both prescription and OTC preparations could be considered. ...Read more
