If it were me, I would want it removed so your symptoms will disappear and you can function normally again. I'm just waiting to lactate, which will be my signal to get it removed.
Mine is non-prolactin secreting which means mine won't cause lactation. So they blamed the lactation on medication I was taking.

How did they discover yours?

I'm exhausted with this thing and I feel anxious all the time. However, since I'm also hypothyroid I don't know which is causing the problem or if it's both of them together.

I go back to the doctor in 3 weeks and have lots of questions for him.
