In brief: Not too much
Adenomyosis refers to the situation where the lining of your uterus (called endometrial glands) are abnormally situated within the muscular wall of the uterus.
When you have your period this causes pain as the blood gets trapped within the muscle instead of being expelled from the uterus. It is a benign condition that is painful but not life threatening. It is not a cancerous condition.

In brief: Benign disorder
Adenomyosis is a condition in which endometrial tissue, which normally lines the uterus, is present within and grows into the muscular walls of the uterus.
It typically happens late in your childbearing years and after you've had children. It is a benign condition and does not lead to uterine cancer. See your ob/gyn for more information. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/adenomyosis/ds00636.
