In brief: No

Fibroids are solid rumors of the uterus.
Endometriosis is when the lining of the uterus is outside the uterus somewhere in your body.

In brief: No

Endometriosis is endometrium ( uterine lining tissue) outside the uterus.
A fibroid is a uterine nodule ( non cancerous) on or in the muscle of the uterus. They can both add to discomfort though and can occur simultaneously, google each condition, much info on the internet, good luck.
