What are hypertrophic changes?

Answer

Hypertrophy is a medical term that means that the volume of a tissue or an organ are increased because the component cells have been enlarged. When there are hypertrophic changes within the body, this means that upon examination, the volume of the examined organ or tissue has been changed. This terminology may be seen in medical charts after having an examination. A doctor will be able to explain to the patient what is causing the changes, as well as any treatment needed.
