Abdominal pain. Done ultrasound. Could this be endometriosis?

hello i went to the doctor recently because of pain in my bottom right side of abdominal which the doctor thinks it may be endometriosis because ive been in so much pain. She saw a liquid filled sac really small that shes watching to see if its a cyst or not, or to see what happens. She did a ultrasound to take a better look and whatever was on the right side is gone but something on the left which shes watching. I still have really bad pain on the right only when i come on my menstraul and it lingers for a couple days after. Do you think this could be endometriosis. I also have noticed throught this that my cheeks on the inside of my mouth look swollen and i have looks like white patches on the gums and cheeks. The grey came first which looks like a line in the cheek. Also in the left corner of my mouth seems like there is irritation there sometimes. I do have some work that needs to be done on my teeth which the dentist said one tooth cannot be saved and the other tooth could but its also decaying also. So do you think that could be because of the bad teeth in my mouth?

Hi Brownappril,

The problems you are describing as pain on the left side of your stomach can be because of many reason. Endometriosis can the one of the important cause. Depending upon the pain description that you have more pain during the period, it shows that the chances of endometriosis is there and it need to be taken care.
Now depending upon the severity of pain and duration of this problem and other investigation you can be prescribed some hormonal medications which can help to control this endometriosis and can regress this condition. Most of the time medication is sufficient to treat the condition, but some time other intervention may be required. In the mean time you also have to work up with the USG finding of cyst which may be the cause of the pain and after proper examination and investigation only something can be decided.
The other problem of your oral cavity can be because of the problem which is because of the decaying tooth. I would suggest you to have consultation with your dentist at the earliest so that other complication associated with decaying tooth can be prevented and in the meantime try to maintain proper oral hygiene.
Hope this will help you. Thanks

The pain in your abdomen is unlikely related to the symptoms you have in your mouth, I would suggest you have a CT scan of your abdomen to determine what the cause of abdominal pain is. This may be endometriosis, it may also be an abdominal cyst or abscess, it may also bee an inflamed appendix
