A:

Endometriosis occurs when the tissues that line the inside of the uterus grow outside of the uterus. To diagnose endometriosis, your doctor will start with a pelvic exam and likely an ultrasound imaging test to see if there are cysts endometriosis may cause. An MRI can find endometrial growths that an ultrasound might otherwise miss.
