Pituitary Gland Overview

pituitary tumour Surgery India

The endocrine system is made up of glands that secrete chemicals called hormones into the bloodstream. The Pituitary gland, a pea-sized structure is the master gland. It is located at the base of the brain just behind the nose. The pituitary controls the other glands of the endocrine system and keeps hormone levels in check. The pituitary gland is controlled by substances (releasing or inhibitory factors) that are sent by the hypothalamus. The pituitary gland, in turn, secretes hormones into the bloodstream. Most of these hormones are chemical messengers that instruct various glands to secrete their own hormones.

What are Functions of Pituitary Gland?

The pituitary gland controls several important bodily processes .Some of the key hormones includes:

What is Pituitary Tumour?

A pituitary tumor is a mass of cells that grow on the gland. Some secrete hormones. The majority of pituitary tumors (adenomas) do not spread outside the skull (nonmetastatic) and usually remain confined to the pituitary gland or nearby brain tissues. Generally, pituitary tumors are benign and slow growing, and pituitary cancers are extremely rare. Benign tumors don’t spread to other parts of the body, so there is no chance of secondary tumors developing. The pituitary gland is divided into two main parts: The anterior pituitary and the posterior pituitary. Two-thirds of all pituitary tumors occur in the anterior or front portion of the gland.

What are Types of Pituitary Tumours?

Pituitary tumors can be divided into two broad categories:

Non-functioning Tumors/Non-Secretory Tumors: The hormonally quiet tumor grows to oversized proportions, actually growing to the point of lifting up and stretching the optic nerves (especially where the nerves from both eyes cross as they travel to the brain) and other cranial nerves. These tumors can grow to be quite large as they do not signal their presence with an excess of hormones. They are usually found only when symptoms of compression are noted.Non-functioning tumors may also interfere with the pituitary gland's normal production of hormones.

The best hospitals for pituitary tumor surgery in India have modern technology and advanced surgical modalities and best pituitary surgeons that offer near perfect clinical outcomes and the patients can soon return to normal life after surgery.

What are Symptoms of Non Functioning Tumours?

Low Cost pituitary tumour Surgery India

Functioning Tumors/Secretory Tumors: Functioning tumors are those that produce excessive amounts of specific hormones, each with its own set of symptoms. Functioning/ Secretory pituitary tumors are named after the hormone they secrete: Prolactin (PRL) tumors - PRL tumors are the most common pituitary tumor. PRL stimulates lactation in women. PRL Tumors cause excess PRL production.

What are Symptoms PRL Tumours?

What are Symptoms of GH Tumours?

Adrenocorticotropic Hormone (ACTH or Cushing's disease -ACTH stimulates the adrenal gland, to secrete cortisol a glucocorticosteroid). Among other things, Cortisol helps the body deal with stress and disease. ACTH tumors represent 15 percent of pituitary tumors. They are more common in women than men. Cushing's syndrome can be a result of many things, including excessive intake of commonly prescribed medications containing steroids.

What are Symptoms of Adrenocorticotropic Hormone (ACTH)?

Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) Tumor - TSH stimulates the thryroid gland to secrete thyroid hormone, which regulates metabolism. TSH Tumors are rare.

What are Symptoms of Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) Tumour?

Excess production leads to hyperthyroidism

Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) and Luteinizing Hormone (LH) - In women, FS and LH help regulate egg production by the ovaries and control the menstrual cycle. In men, these hormones help regulate the testes' production of sperm and testosterone. Excess production can lead to abnormalities with these functions. These tumors are also rare.

Diagnosis: Pituitary tumors can be difficult to diagnose, particularly in the early stages. Non-functioning tumors may not cause any symptoms until they grow larger, and symptoms of functioning tumors are similar to those of many other medical conditions. In fact, many pituitary tumors go undiagnosed for many years. There are several types of tests used to diagnose pituitary tumors. The doctor will decide which tests to conduct based on the patient's symptoms

How to do Preliminary Diagnosis?

Depending on the results, the physician may request one or more of the following tests:

Biochemical Testing - Blood and Urine Test are used to measure hormone and to detect excess production or deficiency. Often, further hormone stimulation or suppression testing is needed.

pituitary tumour Treatment India Low CostMagnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Scan - MRI, the standard imaging test for pituitary tumors, uses magnetic fields and radio waves to generate images. MRI can easily identify large tumors (macroadenomas) of the pituitary gland and is also good at identifying most small tumors (microadenomas). But MRI may not detect many microadenomas smaller than 3 millimeters (about one-eighth of an inch).

Petrosal Sinus Sampling - Adrenocorticotropic (ACTH) hormone-secreting pituitary tumors are often too small for detection by MRI scans. When patients have blood or urine tests indicating excess ACTH production, but MRI results are normal, petrosal sinus sampling testing may be recommended. This test determines if an ACTH-secreting pituitary tumor is present and also can help define its location.

Biopsy - A biopsy (taking a sample of a tumor and examining it under a microscope) may occasionally be recommended by your doctor for definitive verification. Pituitary tumors can be examined under a microscope before or after surgery to determine the tumor type.

What are Treatments for Pituitary Tumours?

60-70 percent of small, nonfunctioning pituitary tumors are carefully observed over time and do not require treatment. Treatment is considered if the tumor grows and causes symptoms. If there is no growth, observation is continued.Treating pituitary tumors may involve surgery to remove the tumor, drug therapy to reduce excessive levels of hormones produced by the tumors, radiation therapy to shrink tumors or a combination of these therapies. Treatments for each patient are determined by the tumor's location, size and the specific hormones being overproduced. Treatment options include:
