The treatment of pituitary gland tumour depends upon the type of tumour and its size. Most pituitary tumours are benign and termed as ‘pituitary adenomas’ but a few may be cancerous. It may be treated with radiation, medications, surgery or hormonal block. In fact, surgery is the most common modality used for treating pituitary tumours. Medications like bromocriptine may be used to suppress lactation in prolactin secreting tumours of the pituitary gland. Radiotherapy, which kills the tumour cells by energy rays, may be used as an adjunct to surgical treatment. Regular check-up of affected individuals is needed to detect and manage any recurrence of tumour activity.
