Not all Mutations and Changes in the body’s tissues are related to cancer. Some tissue mutations and changes may develop into cancer if they are not treated, however. Here are some examples of tissue changes that are not cancer but, in some cases, are monitored: Hyperplasia occurs when cells within a tissue divide faster than normal and extra cells build up, or proliferate.
