Is there anyother method of folowup with a person such as myself who has a microadenoma other than a mri in which they put a mask over your face? I have not gone back for a followupbecause of claustophobia. The test took almost one hour to do. That is why I have not gone back to see my neurosurgeon. Torino1.

I had a diagnosis about six years ago. My neurosurgeon told me at my last visit and mri that my microadenoma does not need surgery. Today, I have periodic blurriness, fatigue, and find it difficult to gain weight ( 102 pounds and 5 feet 6 inches and 84 years of age). But, am managing. Mostly concerned about difficulty gaining weight, but it is steady.

I am sorry about the passing of your grandmother. I was dx with a microadenoma about 10 years ago. Needless I was surprised and concerned about it. They found the tumor after I had fallen. They did an mri. I have been under a neurosurgeons care sinbce then and have had two mri,s. They showed no advancement as of two years ago. My dr has not recommended surgery so far. I have not been concerned about the tumor since the dx. However, I have fatigue, weigh 120 lbs. and somretimes experience blurriness. Also, I was treated for severe hyponatremia. I think it would be wise to take your advise and look for a tumor center. Thank yo

I really have minimal side effects except periodic visual blurriness, no headaches. I am under a neuro surgeons care who does not recommend surgery so far. I do get tired a lot, find it difficult to walk very far. What are others experience with this type of tumor?
