Ans: Endometriosis is diagnosed by exploratory surgery. If this is what is expected why would you need an oncologist? The lesion will go to pathologist who will make the diagnosis for you. So if endometriosis you have no need for oncologist/gynecologist. Both are well trained I am sure in the procedure which is straight forward ...Read more

Actually, I am not sure why he told you this and if there was a concern, why did they not remove the remaining tube. Hope this helps. ...Read more
