I had an MRI for something else and the Dr. said "I see something on your pituitary gland.. you should go see a neurologist."  So I went to see one and she pointed to the spot where the pituitary gland is on the MRI and said "that's not supposed to be there."  Apparently it's a macroadenoma.  So should I be planning my funeral?  I already had a field vision test to see if it's impacting my optic nerves but I've never had one before so there's no data to determine variation.  Going to see a neurosurgeon soon.
