Pelvic ultrasound : Adenomyosis is also called internal endometriosis and occurs when the lining cells of your uterus get down in the muscle. They bleed every month with your period essentially causing a deep bruise in the uterus and pain with your period. Fibroids are smooth muscle tumors of the uterus and are the most common pelvic tumors. They can rarely become malignant. This is usually diagnosed by rapid growth.
