Endo Hyperplasia and Adenomyosis is there a difference

Hi
Hoping for some clarification. I'm post op TAH just over 2 weeks and received my histology report which stated I had endometriosis and adenomyosis. I have suffered all my period life with endo so that's not surprising to be in the report. My question is that prior to my surgery I was diagnosed with endometrial hyperplasia (with no abnormal cells) and is adenomyosis a different condition to this? I will be seeing my gyn on 17Dec but hope someone can shed some light in the meantime. Has anyone else had same or similar diagnosis?

Re: Endo Hyperplasia and Adenomyosis is there a difference

I had endometrial hyperplasia and also adenomyosis. My understanding about adenomyosis is that this is when the endometrial cells become embedded in the walls of the uterus, whereas hyperplasia is an overgrowth of endometrial cells. The only cure for adenomyosis is hysterectomy, so sound like we made the best decision! Endometriosis is when your endometrial tissue migrates outside of the uterus and attaches to other organs.

I had adenomyosis too, but I didn't know until after my hysterectomy. Sure glad I made the right decision!
