Just lurking... my SIL has breast cancer, so I occasionally check out this board. (and check up on my weight loss buddy! )

http://www.webmd.com/content/article/4/1680_51528.htm

I found that ^^^ article to be informative. ... especially this excerpt:

Warning: For any kind of hyperplasia, many doctors still suggest a hysterectomy, which is totally unnecessary for both mild hyperplasia and hyperplasia without atypical cells. Although you might be more inclined to accept a recommendation of a hysterectomy for severe hyperplasia, this procedure is not necessary unless the hyperplasia persists after the lining is removed via progesterone supplements or D & C. In younger women particularly, severe hyperplasia can be reversed with hormonal therapy. The bottom line is that if your doctor suggests an immediate hysterectomy for any stage of hyperplasia, see another doctor! Even severe hyperplasia is still a precancerous, often treatable, condition. (Make sure you ask what kind of hyperplasia it is.)

This is a dictionary definition of Hyperplasia - An overgrowth of normal cells within an organ or tissue.

How this relates to you I am not sure, hopefully you can get your doctor to explain it to you and like BensMom says check with your doctor how bad it is and how it relates to you specifically.

okay the thing from bensmom sounds scary but the definition from terrierpaws does not bother me that much. sooo here is my advice to you....STOP getting your diagnosis off your work computer!! Wait until your doctor tells you what is going on. Obviously this could be bad or not so bad depending on what it means. You are just going to drive yourself nuts with worry if you keep looking at yourself on your work computer.

I know the waiting is the hardest part........maybe go do something fun with the family. Try to distract the mind.
