What is Adenomyoma?
Adenomyoma is a tumor ("-oma") including components derived from glands ("adeno-") and muscle ("-my-"). It is a type of complex and mixed tumor.
In obstetrics and gynecology contexts, it is a form of adenomyosis that forms a mass or growth around the tissue of the inner uterus.
Most cases of adenomyosis are non-symptomatic. However, it may present with dysmenorrhea and pelvic pain. In case of juvenile cystic adenomyoma, laparoscopic enucleation results in a statistically and clinically significant reduction in dysmenorrhea, ease in any chronic pelvic pain and low risk of recurrence.
