Endometriomas main pic.JPG


Endometriosis is a benign estrogen dependent disease that is defined by the presence of endometrial glandular tissue outside of the uterus. It is most often localised in the ovary giving rise to a clear demarcated ovarian cyst, containing altered blood: the endometrioma.

Endometrial Polyps Main Image.jpg

Endometrial Polyps

Endometrial polyps are well-circumscribed protrusions arising from the endometrial basalis layer in the uterine cavity and are either pedunculated or sessile. They may cause abnormal uterine bleeding, pain and subfertility.

Hyperplasia Main Image.jpg

Endometrial Hyperplasia

Endometrial hyperplasia is a pre-cancerous, non-physiological, non-invasive proliferation of the endometrium. Endometrial hyperplasia develops in a background of chronic stimulation of the endometrium by estrogens unopposed by a progestin.

Endometrial Cancer

Endometrial cancer is the most common malignancy of the female genital tract, affecting 2-3% of women during their lifetime. The median age at diagnosis is 60-65 years and the most commonly associated risk-factor is obesity.
