Pituitary Tumors: Follow-Up Care & Support

Regardless of the type of pituitary tumor you have been treated for, your doctor will want to see you periodically and perform certain tests to ensure that your tumor has not returned.

If medication is part of your treatment, you may need to take it for the rest of your life to prevent a recurrence of your tumor. Whenever possible, this should be done under the supervision of an experienced endocrinologist.

To help you manage the complications and various issues that may arise as a result of being treated for a pituitary tumor, we provide the following resources.
