What is tubal metaplasia?

Tubal metaplasia is a non-cancerous change that involves a group of cells changing to become more like the cells that are normally found in the fallopian tube. Similar to the cells normally found in the fallopian tube, the cells in tubal metaplasia often have small hair-like projections called cilia. Tubal metaplasia is commonly found in the ovary, endometrium, cervix, and in the tissues that surround the fallopian tube.
