Microadenoma hormone imbalances (Cushing's syndrome)

Post by madison » Sat Nov 18, 2006 5:22 pm

Is it possible for a pituitary tumor to cause pregnancy symptoms? What hormones are higher or lower and what is required to maintain a balance. I also am questioned if glands are sore along the side of your abdomen like four inches under your arm sagittal (along your side). Sometimes the bicep of your arm along the has a burining sensation as appears like lumpy...like someone is injecting something.

Pituitary tumor, which makes a certain gland's cells experience hypertrophy, has a possibility to over-produce the related hormone. However, the hormone condition is well-controlled by hipothalamus, pituitary, target glands, the product, even another things by the feedback mechanism.

What do you mean by "pregnancy symptoms"? The physically symptomps like big belly or hormonal condition like when a female is pregnant? When they are pregnant, the dominant hormones are progestogen and LH.

Pituitary Adenomas
Pituitary adenomas cause most cases of Cushing's syndrome. They are benign, or non-cancerous, tumors of the pituitary gland which secrete increased amounts of ACTH. Most patients have a single adenoma. This form of the syndrome, known as "Cushing's disease," affects women five times more frequently than men.
