Overview

Pituitary tumors form in the pituitary gland (a pea-sized organ in the center of the brain above the back of the nose). The pituitary gland makes hormones that affect other glands and many body functions, especially growth. Most pituitary tumors are benign (not cancer).

Dr. John Atkinson, a Mayo Clinic neurosurgeon, explains pituitary tumors. Visit http://mayocl.in/2nTdykj for more information on care at Mayo Clinic or to request an appointment. Pituitary tumors are typically a benign tumor that presents in a focal area of the nervous system. The pituitary gland controls all of the endocrine functions of the body, from the thyroid to the ovulation. Patients with pituitary symptoms can therefore range broadly. Dr. Atkinson describes the diagnosis and treatment options for pituitary tumors. Mayo Clinic, across its locations in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota, represents one of the largest neurosurgical practices in the world, as well as one of the most comprehensive pituitary tumor practices. Mayo Clinic uses a multispecialty approach. Neuro-radiologists and endocrine specialists use the latest in research and technology to provide the exact care each patient needs.
