Atypical Endometriosis & Malignant Transformation


Did you know that there are some forms of endometriosis that are classified as atypical and may be considered as precursor lesions (precancerous)? 

How common are atypical lesions and will all of them undergo malignant transformation if left untreated?

Research is still limited, so we don’t really know for sure. However, for the question of prevalence, in one large meta-analysis, 8% of biopsied endometriotic growths were classified as atypical (Van Gorp et al, 2004).

More studies are needed (with better stratification), but preliminary reports like this at least suggest that atypical endometriotic lesions may be more common than previously thought.

Just more evidence that we need more research funding & more awareness about endometriosis, including atypical forms.

    I have been following this blog for a while now and today i felt like i should share my story because i was a victim too. I had endometriosis for 18 years and i never thought i would ever get a cure due to the terrible symptoms i had and this made it impossible for me to get pregnant even after 12 years of marriage and it was a serious issue. I got to know about Dr. LEETU who treated someone and the person shared a story of how she got a cure and let her contact details, i contacted Dr. LEETU and he actually confirmed it and i decided to give a try too and use his herbal medicine that was how my burden ended completely. My son will be 2 this december and i am greatful to God and thankful to his for medicine too. If you have (Endometriosis, PCOS, Fibroid, Ovarian cyst, Ectopic Pregnancy or any infertility issues) just reach him on ( he has professional advise and a cure too.
