Secreting vs non: This would depend on if the tumor is secreting vs. Non-secreting. If secreting: prolactinoma-infertility and lactation, growth hormone-hypertension, diabetes, acromegaly, acth-excessive cortisol leading to hypertension, weight gain. If non-secreting tumor, there are usually problems from compression of local structures-vision: loss of peripheral vision; hormones: loss of sex hormones.
Endo and NS: An endocrinologist has to determine if the adenoma is functional. If a prolactinoma, even if large, medication is started before considering surgery. Other pituitary hormones have to be assessed as well. Cortisol and thyroid hormone deficiencies have to be replaced before surgery. Hydrocortisone is usually administered prophylactic ally if surgery is necessary. Size and symptoms important also.See 1 more doctor answer
