Thank you for your information.
I want to give you a overview of the mode of treatment available.Most endometriosis is found in the pelvic cavity:
On or under the ovaries
Inside and/ or around the uterus
On the bowels or bladder
In lungs or other parts of the body in extremely rare cases.
There are several modes of treatment for endometriosis-
Pain medication—Works well if pain or other symptoms are mild. Hormone therapy—Is effective if areas are small and/or there is minimal pain. Common hormones used to treat endometriosis pain are
birth control pills
gonadatropin-releasing hormone (GnRH).
Surgical treatment—Is usually the best choice if endometriosis is extensive, or if have more severe pain or/ and not improved by hormonal therapy. Surgical treatments range from minor to major surgical procedures like total hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy.
Even having a hysterectomy or removing the ovaries does not guarantee cure.
So your doctor is the best judge to guide you what type of treament would be better for you.
Some women also have less pain from endometriosis after pregnancy, but the reason for this is unclear.
It may be due to the hormones released by the body during pregnancy lessen the growth of endometriosis.
Still it is not found any association between endometriosis and endometrial, cervical, uterine, or ovarian cancers. In very rare cases endometriosis is seen with a certain type of cancer, called endometrioid cancer but endometriosis may not be cause this cancer.
Still it is not known what causes endometriosis or how it occurs?
For this reason, women who are diagnosed with endometriosis need to be follow up regularly.
In most cases, the symptoms of endometriosis lessen after menopause because the growths gradually get smaller, but it may not happens to everybody.
If you need further clarifications, I will be happy to explain further.
