overactive parathyroid gland

hi. I have been diagnosed as having an over active parathyroid gland. Had recurrent kidney stones. tested parathormone, very high levels. Sonar scan revealed an adenoma, which bled once; very painful. Been Advised to remove glands, but not too keen on operation. Why is gland over active? What other options, treatments available to lower levels of parathormone and calcium in body? Thank you

Zahzee, the parathyroid hormone (PTH) is secreted by the abnormal tissues of the tumour. The only effective treatment is surgical removal. Good luck.
