What is a heterogeneous uterus?

In a recent CT scan for kidney stones, it said I had a "heterogeneous uterus" with left and right "adnexal cysts".  I have polycystic ovarian syndrome, so the cysts are not really a surprise, but I don't know what a heterogeneous uterus is.  It didn't mention any mass or fluid, just recommended an ultrasound.  I am following up with my ob/gyn, but like to be prepared for things.  Thanks!!

Hi There
heterogeneous just means that the texture of your uterus is not uniform. that can be because of fibroids. another common reason is a condition called adenomyosis which is benign glands within the muscle wall
best wishes
