I thought I answered this... maybe the response got lost...
I would find a pituitary center and a neuro-endo. Even if a tumor is small - the size is not the factor but the hormones so while the MRI says a limited amount - the real tests are the labs - so you need a doctor that knows what they are doing so that they can determine the type of lesion.
Treatment can thus be determined on type of lesion.
