â—? The pituitary gland is located near the base of the brain. The gland indirectly, through other glands, controls many functions of our bodies. A tumour that has developed in the pituitary gland is called a pituitary adenoma. â—? The pituitary gland is not technically part of the brain. It is attached to the base of the brain and works in conjunction with parts of the brain like the hypothalamus and affects their functions.


Symptoms of Pituitary Adenoma

â—? Hormones regulate many important body functions and physical processes. A pituitary adenoma results in an imbalance in hormone production. The tumour either causes over-production of hormones or their under-production.


Results of Over-Production

● Disruption in menstrual cycle in women ● Lowering of testosterone levels in men and loss of sexual appetite ● Some adults may suffer from acromegaly, in which the bones increase in size, including those of the hands, feet and face ● Unexplained weight gain


Results of Under-Production

● Reduced hormones also cause loss of sex drive in men ● Infertility in women ● Hypothyroidism, which leads to loss of appetite, fatigue and decreased activity of the brain ● Adrenal inadequacy, which can cause low blood pressure, electrolyte abnormalities and also fatigue


Affecting Other Nerves in the Brain â—? As with proper brain tumours, the growth of a pituitary adenoma puts pressure on surrounding nerve tissues. When it affects the optic nerve, it can lead to loss of full vision or peripheral vision and other optical problems. â—? A vision test can determine how pressure is being applied to the optic nerve by the growth of the adenoma.


Treatment of Pituitary Adenomas

â—? Treatment can target the symptoms of the tumour like those associated with hormonal imbalance by simple medication, usually by a neuroendocrinologist to stabilise hormone levels.
