How are the pituitary adenomas cured?

Surgery. Surgery is the best treatment for pituitary adenomas unless it is one that produces prolactin, in which case, a pill (medication) might be able to shrink and control it. If it's small (< 1 cm) and is non-functioning, you might not need to do anything to it except follow it with imaging studies (MRI) to make sure it doesn't grow in the future.
Surgery. Pituitary rumors can be cured by surgical removal with a recurrence rate of approximately 20%. Some rumors like prolactin secreting tumors are treated with medicine and don't require surgery. Some tumors are found incidentally and are causing no symptoms and may not require treatment other than observation.
