Yes, it does.

Some pituitary tumors result in too many of the hormones that regulate important functions of your body. Some pituitary tumors can cause your pituitary gland to produce lower levels of hormones.

In hormone deficiency, unintended weight gain is one of the symptoms.
I have had a tumor for 30 years, now I have carcinoid lung cancer could this have caused my cancer???  Help please!!!
Pituitary tumors and lung carcinoids are not related. Lung carcinomids are most frequently associated with smoking.
Yes it is.Pituitary tumors can cause fatigue, unexplained weight loss or weight gain, and, in extreme cases, blindness.
