As a type of hormonal disorder, acromegaly results when the pituitary gland produces too much growth hormone. In most cases, the condition is caused by a tumor. Researchers believe that about 3 out of every 1 million people develop acromegaly each year, and that 40 to 60 out of every 1 million people suffer from the condition at any given time. The most common symptom is the abnormal growth of the hands and feet. Possible treatment options may include surgery, medications, and radiation therapy.
