A Viadur implant was placed in my arm after having radiation treatments for prostate cancer. After one year the Viadur implant was replaced by another one. After one more year I was told that I would not need a Viadur replacement and that I could just leave the Viadur implant in place. I was experiencing heat flashes throughtout the time the Viadur implants were in place. Then one day I had intense pain in the left side of my head like an electrical shock. After several CAT scans and two MRIs it was determined that there was a tumor at the pituitary gland. I insisted that the Viadur implant be removed. I have gone through radiation treatments for this pituitary tumor and currently the tumor is no longer enlarging. And I no longer have heat flashes. Do I need to be concerned that by leaving that second Viadur implant more than the one year that it was intended for that it caused the growth of the tumor at the pituitary gland?
