  • Prolactinoma

    Pituitary adenomas are benign Tumours which arise from the pituitary gland itself. They are almost never malignant. Pituitary Tumours can be either secretory or non-secretory, referring to whether they overproduce pituitary hormones. Secretory Tumours cause disease because of the excess quantities of hormones which they secrete (release) into the bloodstream. The most common type of secretory pituitary tumour is termed a prolactinoma.
