What is the difference between hyperplasia and dysplasia- and can anyone give me a reference for it?

I can't seem to find a book or journal article that specifically defines the difference between dysplasia and hyperplasia- any help would be much appreciated!

Hyperplasia is a general term referring to the proliferation of cells within an organ or tissue beyond that which is ordinarily seen

Dysplasia is a term used in pathology to refer to an abnormality of development.

Hyperplasia = excessive normal cells which are benign.
Dysplasia = excessive abnormal cells which can become malignant.  (+ info)

What are they symptoms of a ruptured Focal Nodular Hyperplasia?

I was diagnosed with Focal nodular hyperplasia, which is a type of benign tumor on the liver. I've been having a lot of pain lately. Along with tingling sensations that just started today. I was wondering if anyone knew the symptoms of a ruptured Focal nodular hyperplasia. I can't find any info online about it. Thanks so much.

Pain is the only symptom. If you look under
"presentation"of this web page, you will see it mentioned.
I definitely would have it checked out right away. From the second article that
talks about rupture...it is very rare.
Usually what symptoms a patient has
with a tumor, will only increase if there
becomes a problem with it.

Wish I could tell you more.  (+ info)

Are fibroids, endometrial hyperplasia or polyps a precursor to cancer?

I'm 44 and had heavy menstrual bleeding. Ultrasounds and MRI showed three small fibroids, focal complex hyperplasia and polyps. I've been trying natural remedies which have improved menses dramatically, no longer heavy, nor as painful. Should I still have hysteroscopy or other procedure done, or does the resolution of symptoms mean I'm OK?

Not a precursor to cancer. Chances are the pain and bleeding will return. Interuterine scraping is another option, but I hear it is painful and not always effective. Hysterectomy may be another option for you if you just want to be done all together.  (+ info)

How would you prevent intimal hyperplasia?

Intimal hyperplasia is the universal response of a vessel to injury and is an important reason of late bypass graft failure, particularly in vein and synthetic vascular grafts.

Low dose beta radiation seems to be a goer.
Antioxidants seem not to be useful.

Femoropopliteal PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) bypass with distal AS interposition provides improved graft patency and limb salvage rates when compared with those published in the literature for PTFE bypass without the (distal arterial segment) AS.  (+ info)

What is atypical hyperplasia of the breast?

Mine is not cancerous, but can it turn into cancer, and what can I do to prevent it from turning into cancer. Right now they have me on tomxafin.

You're already doing what you should do, taking the tomixafin. Atypical hyperplasia means that the cells are abnormal, but not cancerous. It does put you at a higher risk in developing cancer. If you have family history that raises the risk. But because you've discovered this you will be monitoring very closely and if indeed something turns up, you'll be ready. Tomixafin is the treatment of choice because it works...so try not to worry too much.  (+ info)

What can you recommend for my benign prostatic hyperplasia besides drugs?

I have been diagnosed of having BPH. I have this condition for about ten years now. I take saw palmetto and pygeum africanum. They seem to be working because my urination, while of low "caliber", has not gone worse. But I still experience "dribbling" at the end of my urination. Can you recommend other effective supplements?

Good thing I saw your question, your symptoms call for the Homeopathic remedy CONIUM MAC in 1M potency take it once a week for atleast 3 weeks(3 Doses) and please keep me posted about your progress. It would be lots better if you can post your complete details and symptoms which you are feeling. But as far as I see it just CONIUM MAC will cure you 100% without any side effects or complications. To read about the said remedy please click the link and read carefully :- http://homeoint.org/books/boericmm/c/con-m.htm

Take Care and God Bless !  (+ info)

Can you use Saw Palmetto for horses with similar symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia?

There is a horse at my barn who urinates up to 12 times before noon, and we have noticed that his case resembles prostate issues. Saw Palmetto was recommended by a doctor for prostate, so why not for a horse?

What is recommended for humans may not be recommended for animals. You need to talk to a vet to get the answers you need.  (+ info)

What is the difference between hyperplasia and hypertrophy?

Hyperplasia (or "hypergenesis") is a general term for an increase in the number of the cells of an organ or tissue causing it to increase in size. It may be due to any number of causes including (but not limited to) increased demand, chronic inflammatory response, hormonal dysfunctions, or neoplasia.

Hypertrophy is the increase of the size of an organ. It should be distinguished from hyperplasia which occurs due to cell division; hypertrophy occurs due to an increase in cell size rather than division. It is most commonly seen in muscle that has been actively stimulated, the most well-known method being exercise.  (+ info)

What is the difference between prostatic adenoma and benign prostatic hyperplasia?

Prostatic adenoma is cancer, plain and simple. Benign hyperplasia is simply enlargement of the prostate gland. The latter occurs to most men, if they live long enough. It becomes an issue only if it enlarges to the point that urination becomes difficult.  (+ info)

What exactly is a penile erection medically? Is it hypertrophy or hyperplasia? How can one explain it?

In medical terms what is it? Why only the penis has got this peculiar property? Was just wondering.... Thanks for your patience. Hope this was not odd to read.

If you type up hypertrophy on your computer, o brilliant one, a page will pop up w/various websites. Scroll down to Wikepedia & it will explain fully the difference between hypertrophy & hyperplasia.  (+ info)
