Conditions We Treat

Pituitary Tumor

The pituitary is a small, pea-sized gland that hangs from the hypothalamus, a structure at the base of the brain, by a thread-like stalk that contains both blood vessels and nerves. It controls a system of hormones in the body that regulate growth, metabolism, the stress response, and functions of the sex organs. A pituitary tumor is an abnormal growth of cells within the pituitary gland.
