Tip #10: Endometriosis

This ultrasound picture is demonstrating an endometrioma or endometriosis of the ovary.

Endometriosis is a condition in which the glands that line the inside of the uterus (endometrium) are located outside of the uterus. Endometriosis can cause painful menstrual periods, blood-filled ovarian cysts, tubal scarring and infertility.
