In brief: Why was the MRI done

Incidental findings like this one are not uncommon.
That is why we do not advice doing tests(like MRI) without a clear reason/search for a specific diagnosis causing unexplained pain or swelling.
I would advice you to wait to worry about all the consequences of adenomyosis when you/we are not even sure that you have this diagnosis! (worry when you have a real problem, not in anticipation!
