What causes a pituitary tumor with a very high prolactin to increase in size and prolactin to go decrease way below normal after taking bromocriptine for 18 months?

Bromocriptine acts on the dopamine receptors to increase dopamine levels which increased dopamine reduces prolactin levels. I would hypothesize that even though your prolactin levels decrease that it would be possible that the tumor could still grow because of the fact that it is abnormal cells and the growth may be irrelevant to your prolactin level. Most pituitary tumors are benign, but not all. I would recommend looking into some diets designed to eliminate cancer. Eat more fruits and veggies that are high in antioxidants, and eliminate oxidants that you have control of.
