In brief: Pituitary Tumor

The diagnosis of a pituitary tumor is more complex than thyroid levels.
I encourage you to talk to a person specializing in endocrine function. To answer the question: thyroid levels can be high with a tumor secreting thyroid stimulating hormone (tsh), normal with a smaller (~1-3cm) nontsh secreting tumor, or usually low with a larger (>2.5cm) nontsh secreting tumor.
