Pituitary lesions or tumors are found frequently during evaluation of the brain for other conditions.  Up to 10% of men and women over the age of 30 may harbor a pituitary lesion.  Fortunately the bulk of these lesions are benign and will cause no problems through the lifespan of the individual.  The work of the endocrinologist is to find out which of these lesions are hormonically active (lesions that make hormones), or even lesion that will keep growing causing damage to the brain, vessels or nerves close to the lesion.
