Which of the following describes enlargement of an organ or tissue?

A Hypertrophy

Hypertrophy is the enlargement of an organ or tissue. For example, benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH) is the gradual enlargement of the prostate. It impinges on the bladder neck resulting in difficulty with voiding. It becomes more common as men age. Although it is a nuisance, it does not usually cause serious problems.
