Do I have a tumor

Can someone help me understand my mri results

MRI of brain and pituitary without and with gadolinium:
Contrast: Gadavist, 5 mL.
Axial turbo spin-echo T2 and FLAIR images of the brain and coronal and sagittal
T1-weighted images of the pituitary/sella turcica are obtained prior to
gadolinium administration. Axial T1-weighted images of the brain and coronal and
sagittal T1-weighted images of the pituitary/sella turcica are obtained
following gadolinium administration.
The ventricles and sulci are unremarkable in size and configuration with normal
variant cavum septum pellucidum and vergae. No intra-axial mass lesion or
mass-effect is seen. There are no areas of abnormal intra-axial signal
intensity. There is no abnormality of the corpus callosum, optic chiasm or
pituitary infundibulum.
The pituitary is within normal limits in size and configuration without
asymmetry. There is a 3.5 mm area of decreased contrast enhancement in the
inferior aspect of the mid gland at and just to the left of midline best seen on
the coronal dynamic enhanced images (series 11, slice 3.00, location 22.50). No
other areas of differential contrast enhancement are identified. No evidence for
pituitary macroadenoma is identified.
IMPRESSION:
1. Small focal area of decreased contrast enhancement in the inferior aspect the
mid pituitary best seen on the coronal dynamic enhanced images consistent with a
pituitary microadenoma.
2. No evidence of pituitary macroadenoma.
3. Negative limited examination of the brain.

Yes, you have a benign tumor measuring less than 1 cm in your pituitary gland.
