Uterine lesions are abnormal tissue growths or patches in the uterus. These can be caused by a variety of conditions, including endometriosis, uterine fibroids, and uterine polyps. The treatment for these lesions depends on the specific condition that is causing them.
Endometriosis is a chronic condition in which tissue similar to the lining of the uterus grows outside of it. This condition is estimated to affect 10 to 15 percent of women of reproductive age. Endometriosis can be classified into different stages based on factors such as the number, location, and severity of the lesions.
Uterine polyps, also known as endometrial polyps, are growths that attach to the inner wall of the uterus and extend into it. They form when cells in the lining of the uterus (the endometrium) overgrow. These polyps are typically benign (noncancerous), but some can be cancerous or become cancerous (precancerous polyps).
Treatment options for endometriosis may include hormonal medications or surgical removal of the lesions. For uterine polyps, treatment may involve watchful waiting, medication, or surgical removal. It is important to consult with your doctor or seek a referral to a specialist to ensure that you receive all available treatment options.
