Re: pituitary tumor?

If it is caught soon enough, yes, you would not look like those pictures. That is the goal - to be diagnosed before you get the physical hallmarks that even a 6 year old could diagnose a person!
It should be able to be diagnosed on the more subtle symptoms so you don't have to get that far but if you are not, then you may be more at risk of developing some of those symptoms. I have met some with and without the physical hallmarks. One lady only had her teeth spaced a bit further apart. Her dentist noticed and that is how she got diagnosed.
