Endometriosis Symptoms:

pelvic pain - painful periods - in abdomen, lower back, intestines, hips, thighs, legs

abdominal cramping 

excessive bleeding with heavy periods

bowel and urinary disorders and pain

May include these symptoms:

fatigue

migraines

diarrhea

constipation

gas

bloating

nausea

bleeding from anus

blood in urine

bloody nose

rare pain : diaphragm, lung, upper abdomen, chest 

pain tends to be cyclical with some days worse than others 

may lead to feelings of depression and/or anxiety

some women do not have any symptoms

Pain & symptom diary  3 pages from NHS United Kingdom 

 

Notes:

Sometimes endometriosis is mistaken for other conditions such as pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) or ovarian cysts or irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

Related diseases: ovarian cancer and endometriosis-associated adenocarcinoma (a rare cancer)

Research shows that women live with endometriosis for an average of seven years from first symptoms until diagnosis.

 

ENDOFOUND ENDOMETRIOSIS CLASSIFICATION

Category I: Peritoneal endometriosis

The most minimal form of endometriosis in which the peritoneum, the membrane that lines the abdomen, is infiltrated with endometriosis tissue.

Category II: Ovarian Endometriomas (Chocolate Cysts)

Endometriosis that is already established within the ovaries. These forms of ovarian cysts are of particular concern due to their risk of breaking and spreading endometriosis within the pelvic cavity.

Category III: Deep Infiltrating Endometriosis I (DIE I)

The first form of deep infiltrating endometriosis involves organs within the pelvic cavity. This can include the ovaries, rectum, uterus, and can significantly distort the anatomy of the pelvic organs.

Category IV: Deep Infiltrating Endometriosis II (DIE II)

The other more extreme form of DIE involves organs both within and outside the pelvic cavity. This can include the bowels, appendix, diaphragm, heart and lungs among others.

Chernobyl

On April 26, 1986 the Chernobyl accident occurred at Unit 4, and the explosions and fire continued for 10 days. Radioactive materials released included iodine-131 (half-life of 8 days), and caesium-137  radionuclides (half-life of 30 years) . Experts estimate over five million people lived in areas classified as "contaminated." 

 

See "Chernobyl's Legacy: Health, Environmental and Socio-Economic Impacts and Recommendations to the Governments of Belarus, the Russian Federation and Ukraine"  2003-2004 at 55 pages, published by IAEA, WHO, UNDP, FAO, UNEP, IN-OCHA, UNSCEAR and World Bank Group and Belarus, the Russian Federation and Ukraine

 

So far, epidemiological studies of residents of contaminated areas in Belarus, Russia and Ukraine have not provided clear and convincing evidence for a radiation-induced increase in general population mortality, and in particular, for fatalities caused by leukaemia, solid cancers (other than thyroid cancer), and non-cancer diseases. Page 16

 

A number of epidemiological studies, including atomic bombing survivors, patients treated with radiotherapy and occupationally exposed populations in medicine and the nuclear industry, have shown that ionizing radiation can cause solid cancers and leukaemia diseases in populations exposed at higher doses (e.g. atomic bombing survivors, radiotherapy patients) Page 18

Additional reports have focused on changes in childhood leukaemia rates before and after the accident in individual European countries and elsewhere. Overall, there was little evidence for an increase in rates of childhood leukaemia in Ukraine (Prisyazhiuk et al., 1991), Belarus (Ivanov et al., 1993; Gapanovich et al., 2001), Russia (Ivanov, 2003; Ivanov and Tsyb, 2002; Ivanov et al., 2003c), Finland (Auvinen et al., 1994), Sweden (Hjalmars, Kulldorff, and Gustafsson, 1994; Tondel et al., 1996), or Greece (Petridou et al., 1994; 1996) after the Chernobyl accident. Furthermore, there was no association between the extent of contamination and the increase in risk in these countries. However, one Swedish study (Hjalmars et al., 1994) reported a non-statistically significant yet suggestive increase of acute lymphocytic leukaemia risk in children younger than 5 at the time of exposure (OR 1.5; 95% CI 0.8–2.6). A small study in northern Turkey showed that in one pediatric cancer treatment center, more patients with acute lymphocytic leukaemia were seen after the accident than before, but no incidence rates were reported (Gunay, Meral, and Sevinir, 1996).
