Initially misdiagnosed with allergies, this 17-year-old boy sought out experts to identify the real source of his nosebleeds, which was eventually found to be a potato-size tumor at the base of his brain.

Drs. Andrew Little and John Milligan at the Barrow Pituitary Center performed a minimally invasive endoscopic surgery, which alleviated his symptoms and allowed him to graduate high school with his fellow students and close friends.

Last week Dr. William White joined our support group meeting and talked about the decision-making process in determining when it’s time to move forward with surgery for a pituitary tumor. Unfortunately, we were unable to record his presentation, but the discussion that followed was engaging and inspired many patients to share their personal stories.

The audience made several suggestions of topics for future meetings including psychiatric issues and radiation therapy for pituitary disorders. Follow us on this blog for information regarding upcoming support group meetings. Suggestions for other topics are greatly appreciated.
