Projection of fatty mass on front of throat near where I would think the pituitary is located. My grandson is 15 and just had a bout with a cold and ear problem this was not treated. Yesterday, I noticed while he was running on the treadmill I noticed a p

This: This wouldn't be related to the pituitary, which is inside the brain. You may be thinking of the thyroid gland, which is just beneath the adam's apple in the middle of your neck.

Neck masses that fluctuate in size could be related to a cyst or a fatty benign tumor called a lipoma. Either way, that needs to be evaluated by a specialist and may result in some imaging (either a ct or an ultrasound). ...Read more
