"Virtually all the symptoms and physical features of Cushing's can be associated with other diseases -- and diseases that are more common than Cushing's," William Ludlam, M.D., Ph.D., an endocrinologist at Oregon Health and Science University in Portland, tells Ivanhoe.

"Most centers that deal with this would accept that the first line of treatment is pituitary surgery, brain surgery," Dr. William Ludlam, endocrinologist, said.

Augustine's surgery was a success, and she began to lose weight after doctors removed the tumor.
