Is it possible for cells to multiply?

I was wondering how much more gaining potential my dick has before I can't gain anymore or it gets extremely difficult. (Have gained .75" in BPenis EnlargementL and .5" in EG) I know when it comes to growing muscles you only gain reach a certain point and then your muscle cells won't get any bigger. You're not creating new muscle, just making the cells and fibers bigger. I think this same thing applies to the penis and I was wondering why the cells don't split or whatever when they get too big?

IGF casues cells to multipy, It is called hyperplasia

IGF is the answer to everything huh?!? :p Cure for cancer: IGF
Cure for World Hunger: IGF
Want world peace? : IGF
Need to pay off debt: IGF

Na I'm just joking Supra I think I will do this when I turn twenty-one. I want to wait until I am positive that my growthplates have fully oscified.

Cellular division, replacement and multiplication is a normal process in your body. This is visually evident in hair and nail growth. Cells throughout the body are constantly changing even if we can't see them (this does not mean that they enlarge). For instance, every day you lose many millions of cells from the lining of our mouth, and the digestive tract. The cells that are lost are replaced daily by new cells created by growth and multiplication.

Hyperplasia has, as far as I know, never been documented in humans other than in forms of cancer (which is characterized by extreme cellular generation). Steroid-induced muscle growth does something similar in causing hypertrophy in so-called sattelite cells but it's still using what's already there. There have been some theories that this doesn't apply to collagenous tissue; some sports injury research (using chondritin supplements ) have speculated that the increase in strength and mobility of ligaments in injured joints, specifically those with limited ROM, is due to additional fibers being created. No proof though.

In what tissues and under what circumstances?

This is partially true. Yes, cells are replaced through a process of turnover so that your entire body is, in effect, a whole new body in a certain time interval (different organs/structures have different turnover rates). But the "new" cells aren't additional cells and that's what this thread was about. The "new" cells simply replace the old, there's no increase in the total number of cells, rather, there's a decrease as life goes on.

But, science moves forward. If anyone has updated info on this I'd love to see it. Could have interesting implications.

Hyperplasia and hypertophy is what IGF does

If it is a bad side effect. Using IGF greatly increases your chance of developing cancer.

Supra, everyone actually battles cancer at some point in their life...the thing is, most people's immune systems irradicate the cancer before it spreads uncontrollably.
