Adenomatoid tumor is a benign mesothelial tumor, which arises from the lining of organs. It generally presents in the genital tract, in regions such as the testis and  epididymis. It is the second most common extratesticular scrotal mass, after lipoma, and accounts for 30% of these masses.  It also has been found in the  pancreas.
In the female, it has been found in the body of the
uterus and the fallopian tube.
