Re: Low tesrosteron/pituitary adenoma

I think your T is definitely too low for your age...no question about that....plus it is in the presence of symptoms of low T. On the tumor I suggest a second MRI. I know that some MRI machines have better resolutions than others. Do some research on that, ask your doctor about it, and go to a facility that has the best machine. Adenomas are small and difficult to see so the better the resolution the better chance of proper diagnosis. They are usually done with and without contrasting agent also. If you have any kidney issues be sure the doctor knows...one of the contrasting agents may cause problems for anyone with existing kidney problems. Most insurance would gladly pay for a second opinion before paying for surgery.
