MedlinePlus:33 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: Pituitary Tumors, also known as pituitary neoplasms, is related to acromegaly and pituitary adenoma. An important gene associated with Pituitary Tumors is PTTG1IP (pituitary tumor-transforming 1 interacting protein), and among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Class A/1 (Rhodopsin-like receptors). The drugs octreotide and octreotide acetate and the compounds acth and octreotide have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include pituitary, brain and hypothalamus, and related mouse phenotypes are homeostasis/metabolism and endocrine/exocrine gland.

NINDS:43 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.

Wikipedia:63 Pituitary adenomas are noncancerous tumors that occur in the pituitary gland. Pituitary adenomas are... more...
