If you are diagnosed with endometriosis, your doctor will discuss treatment options with you. Treatment may involve medications or surgery. Surgery can be used to remove endometrial tissue and reduce pain, but it won't cure the condition. Hormone therapy can also be used to reduce the size and growth of endometrial tissue.
Endometriosis is a painful condition that affects the lining of the uterus, and it can cause a variety of symptoms and signs. Common endometriosis symptoms include:
Other possible complications include irregular periods, abdominal bloating, headaches/migraines, nausea, vomiting, and lower back pain.
There are different types of endometriosis surgery. The type of surgery performed depends on the severity and location of the endometriosis. Laparoscopic surgical procedures can be used to remove growths and lesions, while hysteroscopic surgeries can help to resect or destroy any extra tissue.
For more severe cases, a laparotomy may be necessary, which involves larger incisions into the abdomen and pelvis to remove deeper endometrial implants or adhesions. Other treatments for endometriosis include medications, hormone therapy, and implant removal through lasers or ultrasound.
