Does my blood work show pituitary tumor?

I’ve recently had issues with excessive weight gain, periods have stopped completely, peripheral vision loss, weird hair growth, nausea, hot flashes, and pressure headaches. Both my eye Dr and gynecologist ordered blood work and these were all marked high:

Prolactin: 180.0
LDL: 130
DHEA - Sulfate: 391.0

I’m being sent to a endocrinologist next, but my appointment isn’t for another month. Just looking for information.
