Endo under arm?

I seem to remember, a while back, reading a post that was talking about endometriosis being capable of growing in other places, such as under the arm. Does anyone remember that and where can I find that post, I tried searching to no avail. Thanks for any info in advance!

Endo under arm?

Hi Karen! There have been several threads dealing with endo implants being found in remote areas of the body... here's a link to one of them:


There have been reports in the literature of endo showing up all over the body, including in the lungs and liver:
...in endometriosis, fragments of endometrial tissue appear almost anywhere in the body, except "within" the uterus. Most often affected are the ovaries, the fallopian tubes between the ovaries and uterus, the vagina, and the uterine wall, followed by the abdomen, intestine, bladder, and kidney. In rare cases, endometrial tissue is even found in the lungs, skin, surgical scars, certain nerves, the brain, and the lymphatic system (a connected group of glands that produce and circulate infection-fighting cells). Only in the spleen (largest organ of the lymphatic system) has the endometrial tissue never been found.

I hope this helps!
