Endometriosis is not contagious or an infection – it cannot be passed from person to person through contact. Endometriosis is NOT a form of cancer, however, every single benign tissue in our bodies has the potential to turn into cancer; therefore it could be argued that deposits of endometriosis could turn into cancer. This would be an extremely rare event.Currently, there is no way of preventing endometriosis. There are ways of managing symptoms and of managing the disease. The type of treatment should be decided in partnership between a woman and her healthcare professional. The decision about which treatment to choose should depend on several factors: The individual circumstances of the woman The severity of the diseaseEndometriosis can affect all women and girls of a childbearing age, regardless of race or ethnicity. Dioxins are chemicals found in our environment. They are released into the atmosphere from the manufacturing and burning of items such as paper and plastics. There is a theory that certain toxins in our environment, such as dioxin, can affect the body, the immune system and reproductive system and cause endometriosis. , but not to replace the medical advice from healthcare professionals. Please do continue to talk to your doctor if you are worried about any medical issues concerning endometriosis.There are many strategies to cope with pain. Please read our section on pain management Everybody will feel differently after a laparoscopy. Some people may feel okay after a day or two, others may take up to a week or two to get over the effects of the anaesthetic. If you have had surgical treatment at the same time as your laparoscopy this may mean you will take longer to recover. The extent of surgery would also affect the duration of pain after an operation. If you are concerned about how you are feeling, or have severe pain or other symptoms – please contact your GP or hospital I hope this information will help you make any decisions you may face

There is some evidence that a group of plant chemicals called flavones may inhibit aromatase, the enzyme that converts androgens to estrogens. Good food sources of flavones are celery and parsley. Broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, kale, Brussels sprouts, and bok choy contain compounds called indoles, which appear to improve estrogen metabolism. Flaxseeds are high in lignans and fiber, which have been found to be beneficial for estrogen-related conditions. Alternative practitioners sometimes recommend progesterone cream. Progesterone is thought to slow the growth of abnormal endometrial tissue. Although it's not considered a cure, it may improve symptoms such as pain during menstrual periods and pelvic pain. There haven't been any studies on progesterone cream for endometriosis, so we don't know for certain about its effectiveness or safety. Progesterone cream is derived from either soy or Mexican wild yam. A molecule called diosgenin is extracted in a lab and converted to a molecule that's exactly like human progesterone and added to back to the cream. Some companies sell wild yam cream, but unless it has been converted in a lab it is useless because the body can't convert wild yam to progesterone on its own.

Hi Lily and Saurab, Thank you for putting the question and answering it so well, respectively. I didn't know what endometriosis (don't mind the misspell) was. Until I read this thread. I spoke such meaningless words about it. In the previous response. Oh God! It makes me feel sick. I could have just looked up. But the laziness. It will keep embarassing me. Anyhow, thank you ladies.. For increasing my knowledge.

endometriosis can be related to cancer to some extent as in some cases it can cause a certain type of cancers. The problem with endometriosis is that it is widespread but thankfully not fatal. endometriosis can attach its self to multiple parts of the reproductive organs and can because of infertility. As for the question, it affects all ages of life starting from as young as 14-60.Consult your OBGN for a proper treatment and good luck.

Endometriosis is a very painful disease. You can't help it. It's not your fault that you had it. Just take it like. do people know they have cancer. No of course they don't. It's all natural. It's all very much painful. Same like that endometriosis is a ovarian cancer. It do something horrible with your ovary that I don't have words to explain to you. It's better that you should listn it from your doctor. It doesn't have any age limit or thing like that. It doesn't only effect white women. Anyone could be effected from it. It creates a swear pain that women can't even move their legs at all. It could happen in any country. You should try for it's treatment. Their is clinic with our personal experience with it. I am sure they'll help you with that. Just try to be sure that you take care of yourself.
