Tissue change,,: Metaplasia is a change in tissue from one form to another, usually from an outside stress. For example squamous metaplasia is a change from another form of tissue like gland tissue to squamous or skin tissue. It's not cancerous, but can lead to cancer if it continues. It may have been found on your colonoscopy or some other test. See your doctor to discuss which report gave this result.
