wow..really want to thank all of the women who have commented on this article. I am 17 years old and have just been diagnosed with endometriosis and this completely freaked me out until I read all the comments that made me realise the author of this article totally misrepresented the disease. Why in god's name would you mention cancer when it is inconclusive?? The only thing you have achieved by writing this article is made me and probably more more anxious than i already am. So I really want to thank all of you who commented to make me realise not to take this article seriously.
