  • I was diagnosed with cushings and unfortunately my doctors missed signs that I actually had a brain tumor. BUT do you have any signs such as excess weight in your face/midsection, excess facial hair/body hair? those are usually two of the signs that doctors look for. If you are really concerned, mayo clinic has an excellent website on this topic. Also, ask your doctor for a referral to an endocrinologist! Good Luck! Cushings can usually be managed with lifestyle changes and medication!
