In brief: Benign tumor,but

It can be serious.
Excessive production of prolactin causes infertility, loss of libido and other sexual dysfunctions. A large tumor will affect vision, cause headaches and deficiency of other pitutiary hormones. See this site for more info: http://www.Ncbi.Nlm.Nih.Gov/pubmedhealth/pmh0001377/.
