Pituitary tumour is a type of tumour of the Pituitary gland. So the hormone secretion is very important for normal functions and these go for disarray in Pituitary tumours.

The anterior pituitary gland secretes a number of hormones including:
Growth hormone (GH)
Prolactin (PRL)
Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH)
Adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH)
Melanocyte-stimulating hormone (MSH)
Follicle stimulating hormone (FSH)
Luteinizing hormone (LH)

Although theoretically a tumour could secrete any of these hormones, the common tumours secrete growth hormone, prolactin, mixed secretions or no secretion at all.

Take care!
