Pituitary Conditions

Although part of the endocrine sys­tem, the pitu­itary gland is locat­ed near the brain. The gland con­trols the release of hor­mones in oth­er glands and pro­duces hor­mones itself. Eval­u­a­tion con­sists of lab tests and imaging.

Pitu­itary Tumor — A tumor on your pitu­itary gland can impact the amount of hor­mones pro­duced. Most pitu­itary tumors are non­cancer­ous. Many pitu­itary tumors go unno­ticed until a CT scan is performed.
