Other Conditions / Tumors
Other than strictly pituitary tumors, we also treat the following conditions:
- Craniopharyngiomas: Benign tumors that develop near the pituitary gland. For more information, refer to the Childhood Craniopharyngioma Treatment (PDQ®): Treatment - Patient Information [NCI] topic on our Dartmouth-Hitchcock Healthwise® Health Encyclopedia website.
- Meningiomas: Another tumor that is often benign and can occur near the pituitary gland. Refer to the Adult Central Nervous System Tumors Treatment (PDQ®): Treatment - Patient Information [NCI] topic on our Dartmouth-Hitchcock Healthwise Health Encyclopedia website for more information.
- Optic Gliomas: Tumors that originate and grow within the brain and press on the optic nerve and nearby structures. To learn more about these types of tumors, refer to the optic glioma topic on the MedlinePlus website.
- Rathke's cleft cysts/pituitary cysts: Rare benign cysts that when enlarged may cause symptoms such as headache and visual impairment.
