It is just an overproduction of cells. As I am entering my answer I and looking at hyperplasia on my hands, it's not cancer and will never become cancerous.  (+ info)

Is there another treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) besides Doxazosin and Flomax?

I suffer with an enlarged prostate and the two medicines that I take now (Flomax and Doxazosin) causes my tongue to swell. Is there another medication I can take that doesn't cause my tongue to swell. Help me please!

Is SAW PALMETTO effective for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (bph) or enlarged prostate?

I have this illness and is planning to take saw palmetto but I'm not sure if it is effective.

There is quite a lot of data in respected literature regarding the efficacy of Saw Palmetto Berry (Serenoa repens) in the treatment of BPH. I would recommend you take a jaunt on pubmed and see for yourself.

The key influence of Serenoa is the inhibition of an enzyme that converts regular testosterone into an extremely powerful form that generally is not supposed to last very long in your system. This powerful form of testosterone is responsible for enlarging the prostate and probably has a hand in prostate cancer. It also is the culprit in a lot of male pattern hair loss. Why is that strong hormone sticking around longer than it should? We think it's because of the Western diet -high in red meat and junk. Our livers are responsible for neutralizing that strong hormone and when they are taxed with all the junk and extra hormones of our modern diets they cant keep up. In Western cultures -esp US, we expect about 50% of men over the age of 40 to have this condition.

When you do the research you'll see the tremendous science -but, you will also notice recent snipey reports trying to debunk it. This is from the pharmaceutical industry which is trying to push flowmax, proscar, cadura, avodart, etc......

Has anyone ever been diagnosed with endometrial hyperplasia, and been able to have children?

My husband and I have been trying to have a baby for years. When I finally went to the doctor about my unusual cycles, I was diagnosed by a specialist as having endometrial hyperplasia. She didn't really explain to me what it was, other than it could be cancer. The only treatment she gave me was birth control to regulate my periods, but I stopped taking it, for obvious reasons.

Anyone ever been through this?
What are our chances of ever having children?

I had endometrial hyperplasia (although my GYN used the term uterine hyperplasia.) I'm sorry, but you need to control the thickness of the endometrium by controlling your periods.
My GYN told me hyperplasia put me at risk for cancer. In addition, mine went untreated (because my symptoms were misinterpreted by GP doctor) so I got to the point where big bloody globs fell into my underwear without warning. Trust me, you cannot live your life that way.
The preferred way to control this is with birth control pills. However, I resisted "the pill". So I started by taking progesterone pills for about 10 days every month or two. This did cause the endometrium to bleed out regularly and adequately controlled the hyperplasia. However, I had side effects from the medicine. It gave me uncontrollable appetite and I gained weight. So I went on the pill. I'm glad I did. I haven't noticed any side effects.
You could consider the progesterone treatment. But I'm pretty sure your doctor won't prescribe it unless he/she is sure you are not pregnant and won't become pregnant. But if you are really dedicated to this, you might work out a schedule with him/her. If you abstain from intercourse for about 2 weeks and pass a pregnancy test (negative result) then is might be OK to force the period with progesterone.
I'm not saying that avoiding "the pill" means you can achieve pregnancy. I think we get hyperplasia because our hormones are not cycling normally. That might mean you don't ovulate anyway.

For any woman with irregular cycles who wants to achieve pregnancy, I strongly recommend Natural Family Planning (NFP) classes. Practicing NFP will show you the pattern of your hormones and when/if you ovulate. Google "natural family planning" and "classes to find one near you.  (+ info)

what is the prognosis of benign prostatic hyperplasia?

for how long would the person live after the surgical procedure and is there a chance for the disease to reoccur again? pls help me..

The prostate does increase in size as a man gets older. Sorgery is unlikely to affect the length of his life.
The benefits of surgery are long lasting, but because only part of the prostate is removed, some men may eventually need another operation.
Surgery usually offers relief from BPH for at least 15 years. Surgery for BPH leaves behind a good part of the gland, so it is still possible for prostate problems, including BPH, to develop again. However, only 10 percent of the men who have surgery for BPH eventually need a second operation for enlargement. Usually these men had the first surgery at an early age.  (+ info)

Can teeth be straightened without correcting a mandibular hyperplasia?

My husband was diagnosed with a mandibular hyperplasia (underbite, or protruding jaw). He has crowding in his teeth, and wants to get braces. The orthodontist we saw said he needs to have surgery to correct the jaw before he can get braces to straighten his teeth. He is not too interested in having his jaw broken and wired shut for 6 weeks. Can teeth be straightened without having this surgery?
-I also read here on his diagnosis letter that he presents a cross-bite and prognathism.

-Also, we were told that he CANNOT have braces without the surgery. Something about pulling teeth away from the bone, and he will be at a greater risk for losing his teeth in the future??? Totally confused!

That sounds horrible. he could be eating his dinner through a straw. I don't think I like that.  (+ info)

What does "linear neuroendocrine hyperplasia of the stomach" mean?

You need to ask the Dr for certain.

From the very limited info you have given it could mean they found either a line of fibrosis in the stomach or an area that is potentially a neuroendocrine or carcinoid tumor.  (+ info)

What is the Treatment for complex endometrial Hyperplasia?

In most cases, endometrial hyperplasia can be treated with medication that is a form of the hormone progesterone.

You and your doctor will find a form of progesterone and a dose that is right for you.

If the problem persists, more treatment (such as other medication or surgery) may be used.

Good luck :)  (+ info)

is there any relation between lymphoid hyperplasia and lymphoma?

I did my colonoscopy and the result came with lymphoid hyperplasia...one of my friend told me that it can be lymphoma....now i'm very confussed!!...i wanna know is there any relation between lymphoma and lymphoid hyperplsia?

Lymphoma is cancer of the lymphatic system. The two major kinds are Hodgkin's Disease and Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

Lymphoid hyperplasia appears to be a benign enlargement of lymphatic tissue. Your lymphatic system consists of lymph nodes and lymphatic tissue scattered about the body, especially around organs.

More information is available here on lymphoid hyperplasia:

what is the difference between cell hyperplasia and dysplasia?

Hyperplasia (or "hypergenesis") is a general term referring to the proliferation of cells within an organ or tissue beyond that which is ordinarily seen. Hyperplasia may result in the gross enlargement of an organ, the formation of a benign tumor, or may be visible only under a microscope. Hyperplasia is considered to be a physiological response to a specific stimulus, and the cells of a hyperplastic growth remain subject to normal regulatory control mechanisms. This stands in contrast to neoplasia (the process underlying cancer and some benign tumors), in which genetically abnormal cells proliferate in a non-physiological manner which is unresponsive to normal stimuli.


Dysplasia is a term used in pathology to refer to an abnormality in maturation of cells within a tissue. This generally consists of an expansion of immature cells, with a corresponding decrease in the number and location of mature cells. Dysplasia is often indicative of an early neoplastic process. The term dysplasia is typically used when the cellular abnormality is restricted to the originating tissue, as in the case of an early, in-situ neoplasm. For example, epithelial dysplasia of the cervix (cervical intraepithelial neoplasia - a disorder commonly detected by an abnormal pap smear) consists of an increased population of immature (basal-like) cells which are restricted to the mucosal surface, and have not invaded through the basement membrane to the deeper soft tissues. Myelodysplastic syndromes, or dysplasia of blood-forming cells, show increased numbers of immature cells in the bone marrow, and a decrease in mature, functional cells in the blood.-  (+ info)
