Endometriosis is a benign, usually painful growth of endometrial-like tissue that grows outside the uterine cavity, usually in adjacent organs and tissues. Since it is one of the most common gynecological diseases, the diagnosis and treatment of endometriosis is a priority at the St. Elizabeth Group. In this thematic area, lectures were held on the connections between pain and endometriosis and current therapeutic strategies as part of the professional event “ENDO (metriosis) meets ENDO (metrial carcinoma)”.

Endometrial carcinoma, uterine cancer, is a malignant disease of the lining of the uterus. If a woman has no symptoms, early detection of endometrial cancer is challenging but not impossible. At the event, experts informed about this early detection and about molecular markers and their importance in clinical practice.

“We are glad that we were able to discuss new developments in the treatment options for endometriosis and endometrial cancer in a professional exchange with other colleagues and, in the best case, contribute to further development in clinical practice,” says Prof. Dr. Sven Schiermeier.
