Hi. Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is Uzair.
I am reviewing your post and will get back to your reply momentarily.

Mild hyperplastic changes means a slight increase in cells of the mucosa and it can be due to infection or inflammation and usually it is a benign change so nothing much to worry about.I would recommend you to followup with your doctor with the report for exact diagnosis depending on clinical correlations.

Hope this helps.
