Should I get have my pituitary tumor removed?

My pituitary tumor is causing me nerve pain (pinsg and needles), psychosis, headaches, hand tremors, and I've lost conscience for a a few mins two times, should I get have my pituitary tumor removed?
Thank you for  your advice.
Shelly.

What kind of tumor is it, what size, and what has the doctor advised?

Some tumors can be treated with medications, some pretty much your option is surgery anyway - and depending on if it spread, say, into your cavernous sinus, then you would need radiation as they cannot do surgery there, but may do surgery first (or meds) to debulk.

Just saying "pituitary tumor" is not enough... need to know type, size, first or second or more surgeries etc.
