I have had endometriosis since 2001. I got diagnosed with it in 2005 through laproscopic surgery. I had a hysterectomy in 2008 and at that time they removed my uteris and cervix. In 2010 I had 2 laproscopic surgeries for endometriosis 3 mths apart. Has anyone seen a case of endometriosis come back so quick even after being on lupron deopt. Should I be worry that all the pain i am having in could be cancer?

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
You should consider discussing about the therapy to help regress the endometrial implants. A biopsy done on the removed implants would help to know if they are normal endometrial tissue or with any cellular changes towards cancer. If the Lupron depot is not working in preventing the growths to recur, then other therapies must be considered to control the growths and your symptoms. Consider taking a second opinion from another gynecologist (preferably having considerable experience in handling endometriosis patients) for your condition. Proceed with further management as suggested.
Take care.
