Neurological disorders are comprised of brain cancer, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord disorders, diseases that affect the muscles and peripheral nerves and neuromuscular junctions. Neurological disorders often differ between infants and young children and adults. Neurological problems in those younger than 18 years are managed by pediatric neurologists. Disorders that affect the pediatric population include cerebral palsy, complex metabolic diseases, epilepsy, learning disabilities, etc.

Pituitary Tumor Treatment:What is Pituitary Gland:
The pituitary is a small gland found inside the skull just below the brain and above the nasal passages, which are above the fleshy back part of the roof of the mouth (known as the soft palate). The pituitary sits in a tiny bony space called the sella turcica. The nerves that connect the eyes to the brain, called the optic nerves, pass close by it. It controls important functions like Growth Hormones, Thyroid-stimulating hormone, Prolactin, Oxytocin.
A pituitary gland tumor is a group of abnormal cells that grows out of control in your pituitary gland. Almost all pituitary tumors are benign (not cancer) glandular tumors called pituitary adenomas. These tumors are called benign because they don’t spread to other parts of the body, like cancers can. Still, even benign pituitary tumors can cause major health problems because they are close to the brain, may invade nearby tissues (like the skull or the sinuses), and because many of them make excess hormones.
Symptoms of Pituitary Tumor:
Symptoms experienced due to pituitary tumors depend on their size and the hormones they release. Some common symptoms include :
- Vision loss
- Weight changes
- Irritability, anxiety, and depression
- Nausea and vomiting
- Flushing of the face
- Weak muscles and bones
- High blood pressure
- Irregular heartbeat
- Large hands and feet (acromegaly)
- Producing breast milk even if not pregnant
Imaging studies and tests that examine the blood and urine are used to detect (find) and diagnose a pituitary tumor. Tests like Eye Exam, MRI, Blood Tests, Biopsy, Twenty-four-hour urine test, Neurological exam are used to detect any underlying tumors.
Pituitary Tumor Treatment:
Many pituitary tumors do not need treatment. For those requiring treatment, options depend on type of tumor, its size and how far it has grown into brain. Age and overall health also are also important factors to consider. Treatment options include :
- Medication or Drug Therapy – Drug therapies are used to shrink and destroy the tumor or decrease the amount of hormones the tumor is producing.
- Surgery – Surgery removes the pituitary gland.
- Radiation therapy – It is used to kill tumor cells.
These options are considered either alone or in combination, to treat a pituitary tumor and return hormone production to normal levels.
You will probably be able to return to work or your normal routine in 1 to 2 weeks. If you had stitches, they will disappear on their own in 7 to 10 days. If you had surgery through your skull, you will probably feel very tired for several weeks after surgery. You may also have headaches or problems concentrating.
Pituitary Gland Tumor Treatment cost in India ranges between USD 6500 to USD 7500 and investigations may cost upto USD 500-1000.
