What Is Adenomyosis?

Adenomyosis is a condition of the uterus (womb) where the cells that normally form a lining on the inside of the uterus, also grow in the muscle wall of the uterus.

Where dose Adenomyosis occur?

Adenomyosis is most likely to occur in the muscle layer of the back wall of the uterus but can occur anywhere in the muscle layer. If adenomyosis is concentrated in one area, it can lead to a mass called an adenomyoma.
