I'm 53 now, but I was diagnosed with endometriosis when I was 19. I had a terrible 20 years, 6 operations. Numerous courses of all different types of hormones. Some very experimental ones too.
I then had an early menapause at 39. Then came the other problems! When that was finally over, I had to have my thyroid removed due to large growths. (connected?)
So...I'm on an even road now, with all of that behind me. But I started getting familiar pains down below. Sort of like period pains. And it's been a long time since I had one of them!
Eventually, got a scan done, and I'm told my endometrium is enlarged to 8mm. And that no ivestigation would be done unless the measurement was 11mm!
My question really is....if I had so many endometriosis related problems, would I be more likely to get endometriol cancer?
Got myself a little worried!
