A 21-year-old female asked:
Can adenomyosis or endometriosis be missed on an external lower abdomin/pelvic ultrasound ?

Yes: but significant PELVIC disease can be excluded except in very early cases. Other diagnostic methods may be required to diagnose extensive disease. Consult with your GP about possible GYN referral.
Hope this is helpful!
