In brief: Endometriosis

is often diagnosed by imaging including ultrasound.
It is not definitive but can identify cysts associated with endometriosis, uterine tissue growing outside the uterus. Medications are generally used first including anti-inflammatories including ibuprofen/naproxen, but generally hormone therapy is more effective. Ultimately surgery to remove endometrial tissue or hysterectomy is often done.
