Dear concerned.,
Thanks for writing to us.
The pituitary tumours are usually located in a region called Cell Tursica very close to a region called Optic Chiasma where the fibres of Left and Right Optic nerves Criss Cross each other.Usually the tumors therefore produce a visual field defect called bitemporal/binasal hemianopias.therefore it is very important to you to consult a Neuro surgeon for an Elective Neuro Surgical procedure.
Depending upon the severity of the pressure effect and harmonal imbalance,the neurosurgical procedure
will be decided either as a (1) Trans Sphenoidal approach in which case a team of Neuro surgeon/ENT Surgeon and a Maxillo facial surgeons will perform the Surgery an externally there will be no visible scar.
(2)thru' infra temporal route; This involves opening the skull from a side behind the forehead by a neuro surgeon.athis procedure involves production of scars in the temporal area.
Kindly discuss the issue thoroughly with your Neuro surgeon and then decide about the Elective procedure.
Best Regards.,
Wishing you a quick recovery.,
