We can help you with the diagnosis of the disease with a physical examination. The use of a pelvic ultrasound can also help us to identify large endometriotic cysts. Although we will often be able to feel the endometrial growths during a pelvic exam, diagnosis cannot be confirmed by examination alone. We are able to perform a laparoscopy which is a surgical procedure that involves using a camera to look inside the abdominal cavity. Unless the lesion is externally visible such as an endometriotic nodule in the vagina, a laparoscopy is the only way to officially diagnose endometriosis because it permits lesion visualisation. If the growths are still not visible, we a able to take a biopsy to determine the diagnosis. Although there is currently no cure for endometriosis, we can help you to manage the pelvic pain, and other symptoms it causes.
