Is Surgery On A Pituitary Gland Tumor Dangerous?
Hello I am Tina, want to ask whether the tumor operation is a dangerous hypothesis or not?
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
It looks like what you mean is a pituitary tumor.
Pituitary tumor is an uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the pituitary gland. The pituitary gland is a small gland located in the brain, functioning in regulating the work of the reproductive organs, thyroid gland and adrenal glands.
In general, pituitary tumors are benign. However, it can also be malignant (rare cases). Benign pituitary gland tumor that is small in size does not cause symptoms. However, if it is more than 1 cm in size will cause symptoms due to disruption of the production of hormones produced by the pituitary gland and due to tumor suppression to the surrounding brain tissue.
The new treatment will be done if there are symptoms. One of them is the surgical removal of the tumor. The operation performed is classified as a large type of operation and of course with a large degree of risk of action as well. Therefore, the action is only done if the tumor causes symptoms of health problems. You can read what are the symptoms that can occur in the following article.
Thus hopefully useful.
