Research Opportunity: Were you diagnosed with a pituitary tumour following a scan for a brain injury or migraine?

Researchers from the University of Plymouth will be working with The Pituitary Foundation to develop some materials to support those diagnosed with an incidentaloma. An incidentaloma is a pituitary tumour identified during a brain scan which is undertaken for another reason such as a brain injury or persistent migraines. As part of this they need to better understand the psychological and social effects of diagnosis, as well as the impact it has on quality of life.

They are looking for people to talk to about having experience of being diagnosed with an incidentaloma about what happened to them. They want to find out what information would have made things easier for you.

Participants should be over 18, and you will be asked to take part in either an online focus group or a personal interview with student researchers from the University of Plymouth.
