Endometriosis is a curable abnormality of the endometrial tissue that lines your uterus. Endometriosis can be treated medically and surgically.
In endometriosis, microscopic bits of the tissue escape the uterus, instead of getting washed out during your menstrual cycle and get deposited onto other organs like the ovaries, inner walls of the uterus, the ligaments that support the uterus and the space between the uterus and the rectum.
The tissue reacts to estrogen and progesterone, to thicken and bleed. The blood does not have any escape and effects the surrounding organs to develop what are referred as cysts, scars, lesions, nodules, growths and adhesions.
You could be diagnosed as having minimal, mild, moderate or severe endometriosis. But, the presence of endometrioisis demands immediate attention and cure or else it can cause infertility.
