Pituitary adenomas develop in the pituitary gland. The gland is located at the center of the skull base, between the sinus cavity and the brain. Though these are noncancerous, slow-growing tumors, they can invade other structures and become challenging to treat and cure.
What to Expect
As you and your family prepare for your care at Stanford, you’ll likely have many questions. We are here to help you in any way we can and to partner with you before, during and after treatment.
Clinical trials evaluate new approaches, devices, or medications in the treatment of pituitary tumors. Ask your doctor or clinical trials coordinator about available trials that may be additional options for your care.
