Can hyperplasia be cured?

If you’re reading this article, you probably have some form of hyperplasia. Don’t worry; it’s not contagious, and it doesn’t mean you’re going to grow a third arm or anything like that – unless your specific kind of hyperplasia is from radiation exposure. But let me tell you: if there was a cure for radiation-induced hyperplasia that grew extra limbs, I’d totally buy it just so I could finally give my wife a decent back massage.

But seriously, can hyperplasia be cured? It’s a question on the minds of many people suffering from this condition which causes abnormal cell growth in tissues such as skin or organs.

Understanding Hyperplasia

Before we dive into whether or not hyerplasia can be cured, let’s take a closer look at what exactly causes this condition. Hyper means “too much,” while -plasia refers to the formation or growth of cells.

In essence, when your body undergoes an overproduction of cells beyond its needs, that’s known as hypercellularity. In medical terms though, it simply means Hyperplastic proliferation which might occur due to several reasons such as,

  • Increased cellular demand.
  • Continuous injury/renewal resulting in compensatory hypertrophy.
  • Cellular dysfunction and/or mutation resulting in uncontrolled/reactive regeneration/cell division (benign/malignant neoplasms).

Now the important thing to note here is that although these benign tumors aren’t life-threatening most times,70% matters turn against us, finding out whether they are cancerous/benign will eventually lead up onto cures/preventional steps respectively.

Types Of Hyperpalsia

There are two primary types:

Physiological Hyperbolicity

It’s related directly with our aging process where within every organ/tissue structure one observes certain proliferative activity during periods of growth like puberty & pregnancy. For instance, wound healing fast i.e., Skin wounds eventually heal and new skin cells grow to replace the damaged tissue. Same happens with breast tissues as there is a certain increase in activity pre-menstrually.

Oh! I’d almost forgotten – this hyperplasia is neither malignant nor poses any issue.

Pathological Hyperbolicity

It refers to some cellular abnormality that provokes rapid cell growth due to which (cancerous or non-cancerous) tumors may form. These types may range broadly from Benign (typically not cancerous) like Uterine leiomyoma, oncocytomas[whatever you are thinking it’s nothing related to gymnastics], Balanoposthitis etcetera.
Whereas Malignant ones will include: Bile duct cancer [(Familial Intrahepatic Cholestasis)], Leukemia/lymphomas [CNS metastases], Breast/Perianal/Menstrual irregularities etc.

Hyperplasia might occur anywhere in your body, but most commonly observed sites include:

  • The uterus: Endometrial Hyperpalsia
  • The bladder: Transitional Cell Carcinoma associated w/certain chemical exposures.
  • The liver cells Metaplastic Hyperplasia
    (Hepatocellular adenomatosis)

Symptoms Of Hyperplasia

The bad news is that a lot of times there won’t be any symptoms for hyperplasia until it becomes more aggressive and begins affecting nearby parts of the body due to which signs/symptoms start popping out depending on affected organ/tissue.

However when they do appear they might include:

General Manifestation:

  1. Fatigue/Lethargy.
  2. Unexplained weight-loss or gain; either way reduced appetite predominates painful swallowing/reflux symptomatology.
  3. Bleeding unrelated menstruation/Intestinal Tightness.
  4. Neurological symptoms.
  5. Changes to nails, hair or skin.

“Hyperplasia is a really sneaky bastard,” warns Dr Finklestein, “but don’t worry; we’re going to talk about some one-stop solutions guaranteed not to work.”

Can Hyperplasia Be Cured?

The answer…drumroll please…is maybe. And that’s the frustrating truth of it all.

As with many medical conditions, there is often no straightforward cure for hyperplasia. However just because there isn’t any straight approach doesn’t mean nothing can be done:There are different ways you may try and manage this condition [Don’t directly jump over cures as an option without proper diagnosis & calculations your fates gonna backfire]
Here are a few ‘supposed’ treatments:


If the hypercellularity in question has formed into small growths (also known as benign tumors), surgery might be able to remove those tissues entirely If any level of malignancy suggests that one also needs Radiotherapy/Chemotherapy after resection.

Surgical options usually depend on which organ/tissue affected but most common include Hysterectomy (uterus removal); Lumpectomy..ect

What happens when tumors grow larger than initially intended? A surgical incision must happen then which will involve more extensive tumor removing.

Hormone Therapy

For patients dealing with endometrial hyperplasia: hormone therapy helps reduce excess levels of estrogen affecting the tissue changes by following drugs like Provera etcetera.[If not resolved provide radiotherapy]

Similarly breast-related problems support either Reduced secretion & formation of estrogens(Estrogen receptor modulators) such as Tamoxifen/Denosumab OR Focus upon reducing cellular reproduction via aromatase inhibitors(IHST-I). Fistulotomies are another viable option in order to decrease fibroadenosis.


The use of radiation treatment is common in many cancer treatments – but that’s an option in more severe cases For instance if we talk about Bladder hyperplasia, minimizing exposure to certain toxins & particular radiotherapy drugs implies complete remission associated w/cancerous growths.

Still not sure if you want to deal with the side effects of radiation therapy? Don’t worry; there are plenty of weird and wonderful so-called “cures” for hyperplasia out there.

Herbal Supplements

[Full Disclosure: I am not a doctor nor recommend this just added a piece]. If it’s good enough for ancient Chinese medicine, then it’s got to be good enough for you,right?
Supplements like curcumin , melatonin have long been touted by herbalists as having anti-inflammatory properties that help keep your cells healthy (not necessarily cure anything though). But be warned: just because something is labeled “herbal” doesn’t mean it can’t interact badly with other medications or cause undesirable drug interactions.

The Bottom Line

Hyperplasia sucks, and there’s no getting around that fact. The condition is often debilitating and may significantly impact your quality of life.
But remember even in worst-case scenarios leaving behind ideal surgical intervention medical sciences over time will develop some prevention protocols at least
while herbal remedies may tweak severity a little bit but nothing beats proper evaluation & seeking advanced therapeutic directions from professional experts instead direly searching on google :P.{Can’t resist giving my two cents}
