What is Pineal Gland Cyst?

A pineal cyst is a fluid-filled mass that can occur in the pineal gland located in the brain. The cause of these cystic masses are not known. Most do not cause any symptoms however when large cysts may cause pressure on nearby brain structures and functions resulting in neurological symptoms.
