How is adenomyosis diagnosed?
The condition is unlikely to be diagnosed during a pelvic exam. However, there may be a uterine mass, tenderness in the uterus, or an enlarged and slightly softened uterus. Doctors may order an ultrasound to distinguish masses caused by adenomyosis from other tumors in the uterus. However, the condition is more frequently diagnosed with the use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), or at the time of hysterectomy.
