Can severe endometriosis lead to cancer?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 09/03/2018

Yes, there is evidence that endometriosis increases the risk of developing cancer later in life, particularly ovarian cancer. The cause is not fully understood yet, though. Endo has also been linked with other types of cancer, including lymphoma and breast cancer, according to the Endometriosis Foundation of America (EFA).
