Cancer Realities: Outliving Your Prognosis
Sphenoid Sinus and Empty Sella Syndrom

Hi,
I've been suffering from dizziness/lightheadedness, blurry vision, blocked ears and slight pain on the left side of my face since the past 6 months. My doctor said it was Anxiety and Stress. Done a battery of blood work and finally a CT Scan. Have been refered to a Neurologist but have an appointment only at the end of June, which is 3 months away. This is what the result said.

The midline structures are central and the ventricles are normal in caliber. There is no hemorrhage or mass effect. CSF attenuation is noted within the pituitary fossa compatible with empty sella. Some mucosal thickening and secretions are noted in the left side of the sphenoid sinus.

Will appreciate any advise I can get. THis is driving me crazy that I may have a brain tumor or cancer and the more I read online, the more I'm getting stressed out.

Please help

Hello to you! Things are always so complicated! But I suggest that you might want to ask for a referral to an Adult Endocrinologist, which deals with glands and their hormones. The sella holds the pituitary gland, which is mentioned in your results! Good luck!
