In brief: Yes
There is a tumor of the pituitary gland called a prolactinoma which can cause people to stop having periods.
It is important to have this evaluated by a physician. It can be treated with a medication called bromocriptine.

In brief: Yes
Since the pituitary gland regulates your hormones, a tumor that interferes with the normal pituitary function can lead to irregular periods.
Your hormone levels can be easily assess with a blood test by an endocrinologist.
