    I was told I have a 3 mm tumour (an adenoma, I think it was) in my pituitary gland. I get so down sometimes I feel the only way to keep from cutting myself is to smoke. I know it’s unhealthy, but it calms me down. I like to drink sometimes. Are these habits going to cause the tumour to get bigger?
