pituitary gland

I was told that I have a lesion on my pituitary that was found on mri that i was having done as regular f/u for the chiari.  Now they are going to do mri of pituitary to find out what it is.  Does anyone else have experience with this?

Hi Julie...I have not had this  issue, but have heard others that had issues with the pituitary gland  and chiari....

It is in close proximity and it can easily be compressed. The lesion may be the result of compression, but that is just my guess.

  Wish I could tell u more
