What is the significance of the following on a colonoscopy report?
Biopsy of terminal ileum: lymphoid hyperplasia. No evidence of crypt abscesses, granulomas, or dysplasia.
Also, is it normal to have "glandular hyperplasia" from the cecal biopsy?
This test was done on a 31 year old female with no know gastrointestinal problems.

Lymphoid hyperplasia is a very nonspecific finding that can be related to numerous conditions. It is really currently not known what the significance of this is from what I could find in the literature. Similarly glandular hyperplasia is also related to many different things.
My best suggestion would be to discuss these findings with your GI specialist. These findings should be correlated with any other symptoms, etc. that you may be experiencing to help determine if there is a significant issue or not.
