Hyperplasia is a health condition in which the no of organic tissue increases resulting from cell proliferation. It causes increasing the size of an organ often leading to a misconception of benign tumor. Its derivate from the Greek word huper which means “Over” and “plasis” which means formation. Microscopically the structure of the cells shows no difference but only increases in number. It is different from hypertrophy, in which the cell size increases. Most of the times it is not harmful.
