Endometriosis is an incurable but manageable gynecological situation.
It happens when endometrial implants, comprised of tissue usually found within the uterus, are present in other areas of the body. As the tissue continues to thicken, break down, respond to menstrual cycle hormones, and bleed during the menstrual cycle, endometriosis forms deep inside the body.
Scar tissue and adhesions form, and this can reason organ fusion and anatomical changes.
WHAT IS ENDOMETRIOSIS?
The lining of your uterus is called the endometrium. Endometriosis happens when endometrial tissue grows on your ovaries, bowel, and tissues lining your pelvis.
SYMPTOMS OF ENDOMETRIOSIS
- INFERTILITY (not able to conceive)
REASON FOR PAIN IN ENDOMETRIOSIS
The hormonal changes in your menstrual cycle affect the misplaced endometrial tissue, causing the area to become inflamed and painful.
TREATMENT FOR ENDOMETRIOSIS/ENDOMETRIOTIC CYST
NSAID, hormonal contraceptive pills and depot formulations in drug therapy.
Surgeries conducted are laparoscopy, hysterectomy, and oophorectomy. (surgery not always essential)
Is endometriosis cancer?
No. Endometriosis is a benign disease and although it can spread it does not behave like cancer. There are also some rare cases where endometriotic cysts have become cancerous.
