There are three basic things you should know about your pituitary gland: it’s buried away at the base of your brain; it’s very important; and, alas, it has a habit of growing tumors. “The pituitary gland is also known as the master gland,” explains Yair Gozal, MD, PhD, neurosurgeon at Mayfield Brain & Spine.
