Re: Pituitary tumor, but doc refuses to treat it

Whatever happened about your visit to the other endocrinologist? Hopefully he treated it.

Usually they will watch it grow for awhile first to make sure it is growing, but they let mine grow for so long that now it will cost thousands and thousands of dollars to treat the other offshooting diseases. Seems medicine still doesn't understand that this disease is one of the worst people can get because it results in so many other really serious diseases.

The bigger they let it grow, the harder it and more dangerous it will be to treat it afterward and the more likely it will return after treatment.
