-They are classified based on size or cell of origin. [[Pituitary adenoma]] can be described as [[microadenoma]], [[macroadenoma]], and [[giant]] tumors based on size. Microadenoma is tumors less than 10 mm, while macroadenoma includes tumors larger than 10mm. [[Giant pituitary adenoma]]s are more than 40 mm. There are [[functional pituitary adenoma]]s in which the cell type that composes them causes increased secretion of one or multiple hormones of the anterior pituitary. Alternatively, there are [[nonfunctional pituitary adenoma]]s that do not secrete hormones, but they can compress the surrounding areas of the anterior pituitary leading to hormonal deficiencies+They are classified based on size or cell of origin.
