A 28-year-old male asked about a 33-year-old female:

Is there a cure for endometriosis?

3 doctor answers8 doctors weighed in
Dr. Paul Slawek
Radiology 55 years experience
No: There is no definitive cure but many treatments available to control symptoms. Need management by Gynecologist and maybe Endocrinologist.
Dr. Gerard Honore
Fertility Medicine 30 years experience
No, but...: "Cure " usually means it's gone forever. Many women with endometriosis can be treated by surgery and never have recurrence of disease. Medical treatment (drugs) can help with most symptoms but they do not treat the disease at all. Good wishes.
Dr. Michael Swor
Obstetrics and Gynecology 41 years experience
No: There are many treatment options but no known cure for endometriosis.
