In brief: Depends

A thorough evaluation is essential in properly diagnosing tumors of the pituitary gland.
Consultation with a neurosurgeon and endocrinologist is usually recommended. Treatment options depend on tumor type and location.

In brief: Depends

True pituitary cancers are exceedingly rare and may be primary (originating in the pituitary gland) or metastatic (cancer spread from elsewhere).
Surgery to resect these tumors may be performed through craniotomy or through the nose (transnasal). While there are pitfalls in any operation, those who perform these operations commonly have excellent outcomes. The underlying cause must be determined.
