No: There is no definitive cure but many treatments available to control symptoms. Need management by Gynecologist and maybe Endocrinologist.

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.
