Endometriosis is a condition in which cells similar to the endometrium, grow outside of the uterus like in the ovaries or fallopian tubes, or the tissue lining the pelvis. Endometriosis can affect women of any age. It's a long-term condition that can have a significant impact on your life, but there are treatments that can help.

While endometriosis is a painful condition that can affect your quality of life, it's not considered a fatal disease. In extremely rare instances, however, complications of endometriosis can cause potentially life-threatening problems.
