What is Endometriosis?
The name comes from the word "endometrium” which is the mucous membrane lining the inner surface of the uterus. Endometrium is built up and breaks free every month during the menstrual cycle. In case of endometriosis tissue similar to the endometrium leaves its original place and moves to other parts of the body. Endometrium tissues outside the uterus are called endometriosis.
Where is it located?
The most common locations of endometriosis lesions are the abdominal cavity, ovaries, fallopian tubes, the bands of tissues holding the uterus in place, the layers between the vagina and the rectum, outer surface of the uterus, the thick muscles of the uterus, bowels, the lining of the pelvis and the bladder. Endometriosis on the ovaries are typically called "chocolate cysts” and they can produce quite severe symptoms and consequences.
Why is it hard to identify?
Identifying endometriosis is hard because its symptoms are similar to many other diseases such as ovarian cyst, colorectal cancer etc.
