MRI results

Yesterday I received the brain MRI results as below:

"Normal intracranial appearances.No focal parenchymal lesion is demonstrated.No signs of significant traumatic intracranial injury. No intracranial hemorrhage or mass lesion. Normal ventricles and basal cisterns. The orbits and sinuses appear normal.

There is an incidental partially empty pituitary sella.This is a common incidental finding but it can sometimes be associated with idiopathic intracranial hyperthension. I note that the ophtalmoscopy is normal hence this is unlikely to be of clinical significance. The empty pituitary fossa can also sometimes be associated with pituitary dysfunction and therefore it might be worth considering some basic pituitary function tests.

Conclusion: No significant intracranial abnormality is demonstrated.No signs of significant traumatic intracranial injury. Incidental partially empty pituitary fossa as described."

Honestly I feel 50% less tensed now that I know I do not have internal bleeding or brain injury however anxiety kicks in whenever I read the last sentence regarding the empty pituitary sella. Shall I worry about this or would it sound more like a hormons'level kind or problem?

Wondering whether this was acquired as a result of the head trauma 7 weeks ago or maybe I was born with it?
