Hello, my name is Gregory. When I was a young lad, I had to enter the health care world in an unexpected way. I developed a serious disease out of the blue that took doctors by surprise. I went through so many different testing procedures before my doctors could diagnose the rare disease. Everyone around me reeled as they tried to understand the purpose and process of the diagnostic tests. I hope to help others understand these important tests better through this website. Please come by often to learn all you need to know about medical diagnostics and working closely with health care professionals.

If your gynecologist has recently informed you that you have a condition called endometriosis, then you should know that this disease forms when the lining of the uterus releases into the abdomen and attaches itself to organs and tissues in the region. Cysts and scar tissues can form, and you are likely to feel some pain and experience inflammation as the tissues respond to hormonal fluctuations. This happens as the tissues continue to act as if they are in the uterus.
