It's not really cancer but a benign tumor. But statistically 25% of all people have a pituitary tumor. Most people aren't diagnosed however b/c in most cases they don't cause too many problems or the doctors are clueless. As for incels you can be sure the percentage is far higher.

Although exact statistics are not yet available on these tumors (registries only recently began counting pituitary tumors in their data) it is estimated that 20 – 25% of the general population may have small, symptomless pituitary tumors or cysts. It appears that 10% of the general population will have an abnormality big enough to see on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). These abnormalities most often do not cause symptoms, and generally do not require medical or surgical therapy.

Symptoms related to hormone level changes
Some pituitary tumors, called functioning tumors, also produce hormones, generally causing an overproduction of hormones. Different types of functioning tumors can develop in your pituitary gland, each causing specific signs and symptoms and sometimes a combination of them.
Adrenocorticotropic hormone-secreting (ACTH) tumors
ACTH tumors produce the hormone adrenocorticotropin, which stimulates your adrenal glands to make the hormone cortisol. Cushing's syndrome results from your adrenal glands producing too much cortisol. Signs and symptoms of Cushing's syndrome may include:
  • Fat accumulation around your midsection and upper back
  • Exaggerated facial roundness
  • A characteristic hump on the upper part of your back
  • High blood pressure
  • High blood sugar
  • Muscle weakness
  • Bruising
  • Stretch marks
  • Thinning of your skin
  • Anxiety, irritability or depression
Growth hormone-secreting tumors
These tumors produce excess growth hormone. The effects from excess growth hormone (acromegaly) may include:
  • Coarsened facial features
  • Enlarged hands and feet
  • Excess sweating
  • High blood sugar
  • Heart problems
  • Joint pain
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Increased growth of body hair
Accelerated and excessive linear growth may occur in children and adolescents.
Prolactin-secreting tumors
Overproduction of prolactin from a pituitary tumor (prolactinoma) can cause a decrease in normal levels of sex hormones — estrogen in women and testosterone in men. Excessive prolactin in the blood can affect men and women differently.
In women, prolactinoma may cause:
  • Irregular menstrual periods
  • Lack of menstrual periods
  • Milky discharge from the breasts
In men, a prolactin-producing tumor may cause male hypogonadism. Signs and symptoms may include:
  • Erectile dysfunction (ED)
  • Infertility
  • Loss of sex drive
Thyroid-stimulating hormone-secreting tumors
When a pituitary tumor overproduces thyroid-stimulating hormone, your thyroid gland makes too much of the hormone thyroxine. This is a rare cause of hyperthyroidism or overactive thyroid disease. Hyperthyroidism can accelerate your body's metabolism, causing:
  • Sudden weight loss
  • Rapid or irregular heartbeat
  • Nervousness or irritability
  • Frequent bowel movements
  • Feeling warm or hot
