Hi, I was diagnosed with a benign pituitary adenoma in 2021 after an MRI scan. This year on the anniversary of the diagnosis I had a second MRI and this MRI did not show the pituitary adenoma. Has this ever happened? Can a tumor simply disappear?

      I would be happy too but I’m worried that it’s still there and I will be dismissed moving forward. Best of luck to you

      Mine shows some years and some not. I’ve had scans every year since 2009. Lately been showing at nearly same size d previously.

        @DysUnicorn that’s interesting! What do the doctors say about that?

          @Lovemia different technicians might not follow same protocols. I’ve been on cabergoline to treat since originally diagnosed

      Did you use the same MRI machine each time? Because there are different strengths! 1.5T and 3.0T machines. The 3T is stronger and picks up smaller tumors like mine.

        @mymomistoocool no, they used a different machine. The machine used the second time is a new machine. Suppose to be better

      Reading about your experiences gives me hope. I was diagnosed with pituitary microadenoma this year and I hope mine to disappear as well!
