Pituitary Tumor

I found my tumor in the emergency room. I went in for facial paralysis, and the ER Doctor found it. This gland produces hormones.

I believe my tumor grew from being under constant stress my whole life. It was close to my optical nerve, which caused me to be sensitive to light. I am lucky the doctors found it before I went blind.

My surgeon was not able to remove all the tumor. I will be monitored for the rest of my life.
