Endometriosis affects 1 in 9 women of reproductive age. It is a reproductive health problem condition where tissue similar to the tissue lining the uterus grows outside the uterus, causing pain and difficulty getting pregnant.
The study found that some people have certain changes in their DNA that make them more susceptible to developing endometriosis. These changes also increase their chances of developing clear cell and endometroid ovarian cancers.
