  • "Dr. Francis Broyles explains what a pituitary gland is, which is the size of a pea.  The pituitary sits on the under portion of the brain.  It is often referred to as the master gland and makes a variety of hormones that are important in controlling hormonal systems through the body.  The pituitary gland controls the thyroid gland, adrenocorticotropic gland, the reproductive system, and produces growth hormones as well as prolactin.  It is a very important gland for the sustainability of life."
