What is the function of the penil gland in my brain? I have cist on that gland and I need to know could it effect my sexual funtioning?
I: I suspect you mean pineal gland. This is a small gland near the center of the brain. It is known to be involved in the making of melatonin, a chemical that is involved in the sleep-wake cycle. In animals there is some connection with sexuality in that changing melatonin levels and the changing length of days in the spring affect the mating season. In humans there are some connections with the endocrine system, but I am not aware of any direct connection to sexual functioning. Your doctor may recommend a workup by an endocrinologist to check for pituitary gland dysfunction. The pituitary affects thyroid function, hormone production and regulation of water in the body.

Generally not: Isolated pituitary tumors generally are not genetic. These are the majority of the pituitary tumors and include prolactin, growth hormone, and non-secreting pituitary tumors. There are associations with other tumors: the multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome-1 (mens-1) that are believed to be genetic linked. This is inherited in an autosomal dominant fashion. ...Read more

Other causes of seizures should be investigated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
