endometriosis and complex endo hyperplasia

I am wondering if anyone knows if the endometriosis cells become atypical and pre-cancerous along with the endometrium that is still in the uterus. I am concerned about having atypical cells in other parts of my abdominal cavity because of the endometriosis.

Hi! Welcome to Hyster Sisters!

I'm sorry you're facing surgery at this time. It can be especially frightening when you are unsure as to how things are going to turn out.

Although I do not have endometriosis, I do know that it is a very puzzling condition, and it can be very painful (which you are probably already realizing). It's also important for you to understand that having a hysterectomy may not cure the illness, whether you have your ovaries removed or not.

I am sure that other (((sisters))) with more insight will be along to give some additional help and to you. In the meantime, please take some time and read our Hysterectomy Checkpoints for pre-op hints.

All my best wishes!

From what I understand, having endo does not raise your risk of developing cancer.

Hi Lang,
Endo does not increase your cancer risks, but can cause problems elsewhere besides your female organs. and no harmone therapy after surgury.

I talked to a pathologist and he said that there is no difference between endometrial cells in the uterus and the endometrial cells of endometriosis. He said that if endometrial cancer is present in the uterus it can be present in the endometrial cells in the abdomen. Endometriosis doesn't increase the risk of cancer, but if endometrial cancer is present, the endometriosis tissue can have it also. The pathologist said that the tissue has to be looked at very carefully to make sure that there is no stroma present and just the cancer, or it can still be classified as complex hyperplasia with atypia.
