What problems does endometriosis cause?
The growth of the endometrium outside its normal place (the womb) is called endometriosis. It is not a cancerous condition, yet it causes health problems. The malfunction of the organs is often associated with pain and long-term unwanted effects like infertility.
In addition, allergies, yeast infections, and chemical sensitivities may appear.
Risk of Ovarian Cancer
The rates of ovarian cancer and endometriosis-associated adenocarcinoma in women with endometriosis are higher than in women without it, but the risk is still low.
Many times endometriosis is diagnosed in women who are seeking treatment for infertility or other problems. Endometriosis can often be mistaken for “killer cramps”, usual symptoms of a heavier menstruation. The sooner it is discovered, the better it can be treated and avoid unnecessary pain and complication.
