Adenomyosis: Adenomyosis is when tissue just like the uterine lining grows into the wall of the uterus. Fibroids are smooth muscle tumors that grow in the wall of the uterus. Both conditions are common and can cause bleeding abnormalities, pain and other gyn issues. Ultrasound can tell more about these problems.
