In brief: Treatment

Two possible treatments -- surgery or medication.
Depending on size of adenoma, patient age, or the tumors effect on surrounding structures. Medication is usually the first-line treatment. Dostinex (cabergoline) is a very effective med which decreases prolactin production and usually shrinks tumor size over several years of therapy.
