Do you treat any patient diagnosed with nonfunctional pituitary adenoma?

Neurosurgery 18 years experience
Very commonly: Many pituitary adenomas are of the non-secretory type, and most of these become symptomatic from their size and/or causing underproduction of hormones. Many of these tumors will go on to need surgical resection, largely due to risk of visual loss.
Dr. James Goodrich

Pituitary adenoma: A non-functioning adenoma is treated based on symptoms, in larger lesion where there is risk of compression of the gland or optic nerve surgery might be indicated.
