I am a 23-year-old male, and I've had high Prolactin levels

This answer was rated:

Hi, I am a 23-year-old male, and I've had high Prolactin levels for around 5 months, with very low libido and erectile dysfunction. My testosterone levels are fine though.
JA: Any recent weight loss/gain? Are you excessively thirsty?
Customer: No change in weight. Not excessively thirsty either.
JA: Thank you so much for your time. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: I did an operation for Cryptorchidism when I was a child.

Hi doctor, thanks for getting back to me. No, a CT scan is a long wait here in the UK and it’ll require a referral from my GP. My question is: Is it possible that it’s a tumour when prolactin is high and testosterone levels are normal? Or could it be something else? It’s been around 6 months and the issue is causing me anxiety in my sexual life. Thanks.

yes it is possible

a pituitary adenoma

What’s the best medication for a pituitary adenoma? Will Caber do the job?
