What does a "solitary cyst in the left kidney" and a "solitary enlarged uterus with focal adenomyosis" mean?

An enlarged uterus can be normal after childbirth (dimensions?), and adenomyosis is simply endometrium (uterine lining) growing into the muscular layer (also called endometriosis interna). Both may be normal for you & can be followed by ultrasound along with your renal cyst. See your doc if you are having problems & good luck. ...Read more

Depends: If you had a ct scan of your abdomen and pelvis and the results included the above, they may be incidental findings, unless you have symptoms. A uterus > 13cm, an ovary >3cm should be evaluated. It does happen with er visits and imaging that you get a secondary benefit by knowing something is amiss before you have symptoms. Visit with your regular doc. ...Read more
