?congenital: Maybe you possess a lifelong pineal cyst, or perhaps your "gland" was imaged at a distorted angle. Although pinealiomas exist, these are usually discovered at a different age. Most likely, the findings are of no clinical significance. If you are concerned, have a full conference with your doctor.
