Wednesday 25th October, 2023
6pm - 7pm

We’ll be joined by Mr Hani Marcus, consultant neurosurgeon at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery and Honorary Associate Professor at the UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology. The title of the talk is ‘Surgery for Prolactinoma’ and will be about surgery as treatment for people that have prolactinoma, how it works and it’s potential as alternative treatment to dopamine agonists like cabergoline. The talk will be 30 minutes long with an additional 30 minutes for questions.

Regardless of sex, prolactin is a hormone that is present in every body and plays a significant role in producing milk. A prolactinoma is a prolactin-producing tumour on the pituitary gland. This is the most common pituitary condition, and can have life changing impacts on fertility and wellbeing.

Throughout October, we will be increasing awareness about the impact of prolactin and prolactinoma, sharing up-to-date information and connect people living with high prolactin levels with experts and one another.

This event is free and open to all, however we appreciate donations to support our campaign of raising awareness of pituitary conditions.
