Endometriosis is a painful, chronic disease that affects at least 6.3 million women and girls worldwide. It occurs when tissue like that which lines the uterus (tissue called the endometrium) is found outside the uterus-usually in the abdomen on the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and ligaments that support the uterus the area between the vagina and rectum; the outer surface of the uterus and the lining of the pelvic cavity. Other sites for these endometrial growths may include the bladder, bowel, vagina, cervix, vulva, and in abdominal surgical scars. Less commonly they are found in the lung, arm, thigh, and other locations.
