Brief Answer: Parathyroid hyperplasia. Detailed Answer: dear user Hi! enlarged parathyroid means hyperplasia of the gland. it is usually functionally active as well. there can be raised PTH causing high serum calcium low phosphorus. if you say your reports are normal then it can be just secondary to low calcium or vitamin D intake. can you send me your blood reports for exact interpretation. Regards!
