It is difficult to summarize in a brief answer all the details about pituitary adenomas. A pituitary adenoma is a benign tumor of the pituitary gland. In some patients, it is a small, incidental finding and of no consequences. In other patients, even though it is small, it may be serious because it leads to changes in the hormone balance of the body--these kinds of tumors require medical and/or surgical treatment depending on the type of hormone involved. Finally, in other patients, the pituitary tumor is large and can cause other symptoms of which visual impairment is the most important. Bottom line: discuss with your doctor to learn more about what type of pituitary adenoma has been detected and what, if any, treatment is necessary.
