Moffitt Cancer Center is a national leader in cancer care, but we also excel in leading-edge treatment for complex benign (noncancerous) conditions like pituitary adenomas. The pituitary adenoma specialists in our Endocrine Oncology Program help patients manage the symptoms of nonfunctioning and functioning adenomas of all sizes and provide advanced treatment options like hormone replacement therapy and surgery, if necessary. Individuals who have pituitary carcinoma – an uncommon type of cancerous pituitary adenoma – can also find the specialized treatment and support they require at Moffitt.
Collaborative pituitary adenoma treatment
Moffitt takes a team approach to pituitary adenoma treatment that includes the combined expertise of multiple endocrine disorder specialists, including:
- Otolaryngologists- Head and neck surgeons
- Radiation oncologists
- Medical oncologists
- Other specially trained professionals
Together, our pituitary adenoma specialists develop individualized treatment plans for each patient based on his or her unique diagnosis, symptoms, age and overall health. This individualization is key to achieving the best possible outcome and quality of life, as the symptoms of a pituitary adenoma can impact hormone production and vary significantly from patient to patient. Our team also includes supportive care professionals, including dietitians, pain management specialists, counselors and yoga instructors, who help patients cope with the physical and emotional challenges of a pituitary adenoma diagnosis in the same location that they receive clinical treatment.
Moffitt also spearheads a robust clinical trial program that gives our patients the chance to receive the latest developments in pituitary disease treatment. Thanks in part to our continuing research efforts, we are a National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center – the only Florida-based cancer center with this designation.
