About this Treatment: Surgery for Pituitary Tumors
Pituitary Tumors Treated with Surgery
Whether surgery is recommended depends on unique characteristics of your diagnosis. Some pituitary tumors are so slow growing that they require only active surveillance for several months or even years, before treatment is recommended. In general, surgery is an option for any type of pituitary tumor.
