Mutations Associated with Cancer Were Identified in "Endometriosis without Cancer"

This discovery can help scientists better understand how endometriosis develops, clarify the differences between different subtypes, and may lead to better treatments in the future.

Unexpected "cancer-related" mutations in "non-cancerous" endometriosis: Do they predict aggressiveness?

A collaborative study supported by Endometriosis Foundation of America, have identified the molecular alterations of deep infiltrating endometriosis trough a wide protein coding genetic-alphabet order study. Molecular alterations, specifically cancer-related gene mutations, have been identified.
