"MRI is the best method to differentiate adenomyosis and fibroids"
Is adenomyosis confused with fibroids?
Yes, it can be confused very often. The reason for this is that common symptoms such as increased menstrual bleeding may be seen in both diseases and imaging methods, especially ultrasound, are insufficient to make this distinction. The most important feature that distinguishes both diseases clinically is that menstruation pain is much more prominent in adenomyosis. Pain is absent or mild in many fibroid patients. However, it is not easy to distinguish between fibroids and adenomyosis if they are present in the same patient.
