Hyperparathyroidism

Hyperparathyroidism

Hyperparathyroidism is a disease in which one or more of the parathyroid glands enlarge, forming a benign (non-cancerous) tumor that produces excess amounts of hormone. This results in above normal calcium levels in the blood and possibly in the urine as well. A single tumor is called an adenoma and enlargement of multiple glands is referred to as hyperplasia.
