In brief: Pituitary tumors

The pituitary is the "master" gland for most hormones and any one or more of the components of the pituitary could be involved.
The treatment would vary greatly with the results of your physical exam and the lab data. If you know for sure that you have pituitary problems please see an endocrinologist and, depending on the result, you may need medical and/or surgical treatment. Keep in touch please.

In brief: Unclear question

Please tell us more about your medical problem. If you want to know what are the treatments for pituitary adenoma, you need to ask your doctors(endocrinologist or a neurosurgeon).
Often the adenoma can be removed surgically. But there is also good medicine for one type of adenoma called, Prolactinoma.
