Endometrial tissue that grows in a place other than the uterus causes a disease called endometriosis and can be found in different body parts, including the ovaries, Fallopian tubes, back wall of the uterus, ligaments of the uterus, pelvic cavity, and even in other areas like the bladder and lungs, though this is extremely uncommon.
Depending on where endometrial tissue grows, we can distinguish between the following types:
- Ovarian endometriosis
- Tubal endometriosis
- Pelvic endometriosis
- Rectovaginal endometriosis
- Bowel endometriosis
- Peritoneal endometriosis
