Sometimes: The true diagnosis of endometriosis requires a biopsy and a pathologist to confirm the diagnosis. Almost all the time this requires an abdominal procedure, commonly laparoscopy. However, some women may have nodules of endometriosis in the vagina, for instance, that can be biopsied in the office to prove endometriosis. Usually this is a bad prognostic sign. ...Read more
