Summaries for Endometriosis

MedlinePlus : 42 What is endometriosis? The uterus, or womb, is the place where a baby grows when a woman is pregnant. It is lined with tissue (endometrium). Endometriosis is a disease in which tissue that is similar to the lining of the uterus grows in other places in your body. These patches of tissue are called "implants," "nodules," or "lesions." They are most often found On or under the ovaries On the fallopian tubes, which carry egg cells from the ovaries to the uterus Behind the uterus On the tissues that hold the uterus in place On the bowels or bladder In rare cases, the tissue may grow on your lungs or in other parts of your body. What causes endometriosis? The cause of endometriosis is unknown. Who is at risk for endometriosis? Endometriosis is most commonly diagnosed in women in their 30s and 40s. But it can affect any female who menstruates. Certain factors can raise or lower your risk of getting it. You are at higher risk if You have a mother, sister, or daughter with endometriosis Your period started before age 11 Your monthly cycles are short (less than 27 days) Your menstrual cycles are heavy and last more than 7 days You have a lower risk if You have been pregnant before Your periods started late in adolescence You regularly exercise more than 4 hours a week You have a low amount of body fat What are the symptoms of endometriosis? The main symptoms of endometriosis are Pelvic pain, which affects about 75 percent of women with endometriosis. It often happens during your period. Infertility, which affects up to half of all women with endometriosis Other possible symptoms include Painful menstrual cramps, which may get worse over time Pain during or after sex Pain in the intestine or lower abdomen Pain with bowel movements or urination, usually during your period Heavy periods Spotting or bleeding between periods Digestive or gastrointestinal symptoms Fatigue or lack of energy How is endometriosis diagnosed? Surgery is the only way to know for sure that you have endometriosis. First, however, your health care provider will ask about your symptoms and medical history. You will have a pelvic exam and may have some imaging tests. The surgery to diagnose endometriosis is a laparoscopy. This is a type of surgery that uses a laparoscope, a thin tube with a camera and light. The surgeon inserts the laparoscope through a small cut in the skin. Your provider can make a diagnosis based on how the patches of endometriosis look. He or she may also do a biopsy to get a tissue sample. What are the treatments for endometriosis? There is no cure for endometriosis, but there are treatments for the symptoms. Your health care provider will work with you to decide which treatments would be best for you. Treatments for endometriosis pain include Pain relievers, including nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) such as ibuprofen and a prescription medicine specifically for endometriosis. Providers may sometimes prescribe opioids for severe pain. Hormone therapy, including birth control pills, progestin therapy, and gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonists. GnRH agonists cause a temporary menopause, but also help control the growth of endometriosis. Surgical treatments for severe pain, including procedures to remove the endometriosis patches or cut some nerves in the pelvis. The surgery may be a laparoscopy or major surgery. The pain may come back within a few years after surgery. If the pain is very severe, a hysterectomy may be an option. This is a surgery to remove the uterus. Sometimes providers also remove the ovaries and fallopian tubes as part of a hysterectomy. Treatments for infertility caused by endometriosis include Laparoscopy to remove the endometriosis patches In vitro fertilization NIH: National Institute of Child Health and Human Development

MalaCards based summary : Endometriosis is related to mayer-rokitansky-kuster-hauser syndrome and in situ carcinoma, and has symptoms including pelvic pain and pain and other symptoms associated with female genital organs. An important gene associated with Endometriosis is CDKN2B-AS1 (CDKN2B Antisense RNA 1), and among its related pathways/superpathways are MicroRNAs in cancer and miRNAs involved in DNA damage response. The drugs Goserelin and Desogestrel have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include uterus, ovary and colon.

Disease Ontology : 12 A female reproductive system disease characterized by the growth of endometrial tissue outside the uterine body.

KEGG : 36 Endometriosis is defined as the growth of the endometrial glands and stroma at extra-uterine sites, which are most commonly implanted over and under visceral and peritoneal surfaces within the female pelvis but which can also be found in the connective tissue in the pelvis areas and, more rarely, in any anatomic district. It is a major cause of infertility, dysmenorrhea, dyspareunia, and chronic pelvic pain, mediated by marked pelvic inflammation. While retrograde menstruation is the most widely accepted cause, its pathogenesis and natural course are not fully understood. Endometriosis is known to be a estrogen-dependent disease, manifests during reproductive years.

PubMed Health : 62 About endometriosis: Endometriosis is one of the most common medical conditions affecting the abdomen (lower belly) in women. In endometriosis, the kind of tissue that normally lines the inside of the womb (endometrial tissue) also grows outside of it. The medical term for endometrial tissue that has grown outside of the womb is “endometrial implants.” Some women have them without knowing it. But other women experience endometriosis as a chronic disease that causes severe pain and fertility problems. It often takes years for endometriosis to be diagnosed as the cause of these problems. Until the diagnosis is made, many women try to cope with their pain somehow. They believe that the pain – even really bad pain – is a normal part of their menstrual period. There is currently no cure for endometriosis. But there are many things that can be done to relieve the symptoms. If treatment is adapted to suit women’s personal circumstances and the severity of their endometriosis, many can cope quite well with the disease. Like with other chronic conditions, it's important to get to know your own body and how it reacts, in order to find ways to manage the symptoms. Getting hold of good information and consulting experienced, supportive doctors can help.

There is currently no “cure” for endometriosis – in other words, there are no treatments that can fight what is causing it. But various treatments can help relieve the symptoms, temporarily or permanently. The medication options include painkillers, hormonal contraception and stronger hormone therapy . Painkillers only relieve the symptoms, whereas hormone-based treatments slow down the growth of endometrial implants . Surgery is also an option. The aim of surgery for endometriosis is usually to remove as many endometrial implants as possible. Sometimes surgery is even necessary – for instance, if endometriosis is affecting bowel or bladder function.
