Today I’m going to share with you a few of the leading pituitary gland tumor warning indicators and how someone may be able to prevent this problem. I like to think of the human body as one giant assembly line with all these different moving parts and workers. The CEO is the brain, then you have the managers, which are hormones and lastly you have all the workers. The pituitary gland is responsible for creating and training many of the hormones that travel around telling the workers what to do. It’s a tiny gland about the size of a pea and is found at the lower part of the brain.
A tumor is a swelling in a part of the body, usually without inflammation. It is caused by an abnormal growth of cells or tissues. What causes this abnormal cell growth still puzzles many of the smartest minds in the medical field, but like most health problems genetics can play a role. This means that if pituitary gland tumors run in your family it increases the chance of you getting it because you inherit your families genes.
Since hormones manage many body functions there could be a wide range of warning indicators. One of the most common indicators that something is wrong in the body is going to be pain. A frequent headache could be sign of this problem. Another common sign according to the National Cancer Institute is peripheral vision loss. This means that someone loses the ability to see in the corners of a person’s vision. One of the hormones that this gland produces has to do with body hair. If you notice that you are losing body or facial hair that could be a sign of your pituitary gland not working. Women could have less frequent menstrual periods or a lack of milk from their chest area. A reduced libido, lovemaking problems, fatigue and nausea are all signs as well. The only way to know for sure is to see a medical professional and get some tests done.
If a tumor is an abnormal growth in cells do you know what other scary disease can be caused by abnormal cell growth? Yes cancer happens when cell growth is unstable. There has been some evidence linking a vitamin D deficiency with cancer. According to the National Cancer Institute vitamin D has been found to slow or prevent the development of cancer, encouraging cancer cell death and even reducing tumor blood vessel formation. If this vitamin can do this with cancer tumors then perhaps it can help with a pituitary gland tumor. There are also additional vitamins that play a big role in the health of cells such as vitamin B. Ensuring you’re getting all the vitamins and minerals your body needs through a quality multivitamin could reduce the chance of someone getting this type of tumor.
To sum everything up the leading pituitary gland tumor warning indicators are a headache, peripheral vision loss, a loss of body hair, less frequent menstrual periods, not being able to produce milk from the chest, reduced libido, fatigue and nausea. Someone might be able to prevent this problem by taking a quality multivitamin supplement.
