Before I found out I might have endo, I found out that I have the BRCA1 and 2 genes for ovarian/breast cancer. I haven't had my laparoscopy yet and I've read that endo also increases chances of these cancers. Which could mean my risk is going to be very very high. But I've not been able to find out if having the BRCA1/2 increases your likelyhood of having endometriosis? I'd really like to know this before my laparoscopy. Has anyone else ever been in this situation or know any more information??
