Not commonly. These are not common symptoms of pituitary tumors...But they could occur if the tumor is producing too much thyroid or adrenal (cortisol) hormones. When someone complains of arm or chest pain, we worry more about the heart or lung rather than the pituitary.
No. The centers for the sensation and movement of the arms and legs are not anywhere near where the pituitary gland is in the brain.
Prolactinoma N preg. Small prolactinoma producing little prolactin may not affect your chance of pregnancy, but one that is producing much hormone will likely reduce your chance some what. Many women who are actively breastfeeding produce higher prolactin than nonlactating females, but they still get pregnant during this time. So if u r trying for it, good luck, if trouble, consult doc. Good luck.
Maybe. You should discuss this with your endocrinologist/ob/gyne before getting pregnant. There are risks to consider, especially that higher estrogen levels during pregnancy may cause further growth of prolactinoma which may affect vision, etc.
I am a 26 y/o fem. I have pcos. My empty uterus measured 11 week-size recently. I have noticed a little breast milk secretion. Pituitary tumor?
Why empty? What is increasing the size of uterus? Do you have fibroids? Increase in size of uterus with lactation--- means pregnancy or some sort of hormone secreting tumor (not necessarily pituitary-- could be breast).
