Common and benign : Adenomyosis is when benign endometrial stroma and glands are found in the smooth muscle wall which is abnormal. This can cause irregular periods in bleeding but usually is not apt cause severe symptoms. Squamous metaplasia is a benign and fairly normal process with the endocervical glands merge to the squamous mucosal with a transitional area. It is not uncommon to have chronic inflammation in this area it is not particularly worrisome.

Common: All of those diagnoses are common, benign, and essentially normal. None of that is cancer and it will not cause you any problems in the future.
