Summaries for Pituitary Tumors

About this section


MedlinePlus:32 Your pituitary gland is a pea-sized gland at the base of your brain. the pituitary is the "master control gland" - it makes hormones that affect growth and the functions of other glands in the body. pituitary tumors are common, but often they don't cause health problems. most people with pituitary tumors never even know they have them. the most common type of pituitary tumor produces hormones and disrupts the balance of hormones in your body. this can cause endocrine diseases such as cushing's syndrome and hyperthyroidism. symptoms of pituitary tumors include headaches vision problems nausea and vomiting problems caused by the production of too many hormones pituitary tumors are usually curable. treatment is often surgery to remove the tumor. other options include medicines, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy.

MalaCards based summary: Pituitary Tumors, also known as pituitary neoplasms, is related to pituitary carcinoma and pituitary apoplexy. An important gene associated with Pituitary Tumors is GNAS (GNAS complex locus), and among its related pathways are Transcription CREM signaling in testis and Hormone ligand-binding receptors. The drugs octreotide and octreotide acetate and the compounds [125i]tyr3 sms 201-995 and bim 23060 have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include pituitary, brain and hypothalamus, and related mouse phenotypes are endocrine/exocrine gland and behavior/neurological.

NINDS:42 The pituitary is a small, bean-sized gland that is below the hypothalamus, a structure at the base of the brain, by a thread-like stalk that contains both blood vessels and nerves.
