The pituitary gland is an important gland in the brain, and is often referred to as the "master endocrine gland" because it secretes a variety of hormones that affect many bodily functions. Pituitary glands have two lobes, anterior and posterior, and each is responsible for releasing specific hormones. Therefore, tumors in these glands can be very serious, as a malfunctioning pituitary gland can cause serious symptoms in other organs or systems. Generally, pituitary tumors are benign growths and are classified as pituitary adenomas. People with a pituitary gland tumor may experience the following symptoms. Sometimes, people with these tumors do not show any of these symptoms. Or, these symptoms may be similar to symptoms of other medical conditions. It is very important to talk to a doctor if you feel like any of the symptoms here: Headaches, vomiting, vision problems, changes in menstrual cycles in women, impotence in men caused by hormone changes, infertility, inappropriate production of breast milk, Cushing’s syndrome, caused by overproduction of ACTH, acromegaly from overproduction of growth hormone, tiredness and irritability. The treatment of a pituitary gland tumor depends on the size and location of the tumor, whether it is cancerous, whether it has spread, and the person's overall health. In many cases, a team of doctors will work with the patient to determine the best treatment plan. It is also important to state that some people with pituitary tumors need no treatment. Pituitary tumors are sometimes diagnosed in people where the tumor is not creating any symptoms and in whom hormone functions are completely intact. These patients need to undergo occasional surveillance to ensure that the tumor does not become more active. The goal of pituitary gland tumor surgery is to remove as much of the tumor as possible without harming nearby structures. Surgery for a pituitary tumor is often successful, but requires a surgeon skilled in this form of surgery. About 95% of surgeries to remove pituitary tumors are done by the transsphenoidal route, with the remainder done through a craniotomy.
