Pituitary tumours: What are they? Symptoms, risk factors, diagnosis, treatment and more

Pituitary tumours are rare and often go undiscovered throughout a person's life. These growths in the pituitary gland are usually non-cancerous and slow-growing causing the gland to either produce too many hormones or too few. This small gland at the base of the brain is responsible for producing various hormones that influence the function of other glands and the overall performance of the body.
