Is uterine myoma (fibroids) the same as adenomyosis?

By Rebeca Reus.
Last Update: 10/02/2017

No. In the case of uterine myomatosis, fibroids, that is, tumors of muscle tissue, form. Adenomyosis, on the other hand, is the presence of endometrial tissue in the myometrium. They only coincide in location: the myometrium, the muscular layer of the uterus.
