Depends: Hi. Pituitary macroadenomas can cause problems by either: 1) producing hormones, or 2) mass effect (compressing normal pituitary tissue and/or the pituitary stalk). Hormone-producing tumors that can cause weight gain produce ACTH or growth hormone (GH). ACTH and GH tumors have very characteristic physical exam findings. See an endocrinologist.
