What you have asked is a very specific question, the kind only a specialist in anatomy, doctor etc might know. Most of the people here are simply students, still trying to understand biology. Dr.Stein might know, but she is busy with school now... Wait a while, maybe you will get lucky

Ectopic and heterotopic is synonim, means abnormal or unusual location.
