Just told my pituitary gland is enlarged

Hello everyone.  I am new to this site.   Just had a brain MRI.  Got a call from the Doc's office stating that my pituitary gland is possibly enlarged.  Have another appointment this Friday with him.   For the past year and a half I have been having dull one-sided headaches.  Pressure behind the eye on the right side.  I have been complaining of this for a while and finally my doc sent me for an MRI.   Is this always a tumor?  My vision is a little blurry at times (while trying to read small print)  but, I thought it was due to aging.  I am 41.   Any info or help would be appreciated.  Thanks

The only way to really know is to have further testing. I think getting that done is very important.

I really do not know of anything other than swelling or tumor when the pitutiary is enlarged.

Really it is something that can be treated - Don't fret. it can be fixed.
