Product Description

Pituitary tumor

A pituitary tumor is an abnormal growth in the pituitary gland, the part of the brain that regulates the body''s balance of hormones.

Most pituitary tumors are noncancerous (benign). Up to 20% of people have pituitary tumors. However, many of these tumors do not cause symptoms and are never diagnosed during the person''s lifetime.

The pituitary gland is a pea-sized endocrine gland located at the base of the brain. The pituitary helps control the release of hormones from other endocrine glands, such as the thyroid and adrenal glands. The pituitary also releases hormones that directly affect body tissues, such as bones and the breast''s milk glands. These hormones include:

  • Adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH)
  • Growth hormone (GH)
  • Prolactin
  • Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH)

As the tumor grows, hormone-releasing cells of the pituitary may be damaged, causing hypopituitarism.

The causes of pituitary tumors are unknown. However, some are part of a hereditary disorder called multiple endocrine neoplasia I (MEN I).

Most pituitary tumors produce too much of one or more hormones. As a result, symptoms of one or more of the following conditions can occur:

  • Hyperthyroidism
  • Cushing syndrome
  • Gigantism or acromegaly
  • Nipple discharge

Symptoms caused by pressure from a larger pituitary tumor may include:

  • Headache
  • Lethargy
  • Nasal drainage
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Problems with the sense of smell
  • Visual changes
    • Double vision
    • Drooping eyelids
    • Visual field loss

Rarely, these symptoms may occur suddenly and can be severe.

Pituitary tumors are usually not cancerous and therefore won''t spread to other areas of the body. However, as they grow, they may place pressure on important nerves and blood vessels.

Surgery to remove the tumor is often necessary, especially if the tumor is pressing on the optic nerves, which could cause blindness.

Most of the time, pituitary tumors can be removed through the nose and sinuses. However, some tumors cannot be removed this way and will need to be removed through the skull (transcranial).

If the tumor can be surgically removed, the outlook is fair to good, depending upon whether the entire tumor is removed.
