Hi, I would be gratefull if someone can advise me further on the following hormone test results. I was particularly concerned about the high levels of prolactin. Here are the full results: The figures in brackets are apparantly averages in males.
The above results have me a bit worried. Could someone please help me digest some of these results?
I seem to have low SHBG, Low FSH, Low Testosterone but very HIGH Prolactin. Having read other posts on Medhelp could this be linked to benign tumour called a prolactinoma in the pituitary gland? or Pituitary Adenoma? Would I need to get an MRI scan? I have done a bit of research but I cant seem to distinguish how serious these results are and also the cures behind it. If someone can advise I would be gratefull.
thanks in advance
