The pituitary gland sits in a bony structure at the base of the skull, and is sometimes the site of the benign (non-cancerous) growths. It is especially suited to minimally invasive procedures due both to its location, and to the thin, and therefore easily penetrated, bone layer surrounding it. Both benign and malignant tumors can cause many symptoms, from abnormal thickening of bone to secretion of milk from the breasts in both males and females.
