Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic.
An imaging study may describe an organ as homogeneous or heterogeneous. Homogeneous means that the areas seen appear the same, no difference is noted in any aspect of the uterus when it was seen.myometrium is the muscular aspect of the uterus, so they are saying that it all appears the same, no abnormality seen.
A nabothian cyst is seen on the cervix. The cervix has glands that secrete mucus , these can become blocked and the mucus collects to form a cyst . A cyst is a sac that contains some type of substance, in this case mucus.
It is not cancerous and no treatment may be needed, though some women prefer to have it removed.

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
