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 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.
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 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.
