thanks for your query.
Endometriosis and PCOS can definitely coexist in the same patient.
They are in fact frequently seen together.
PCOS of course is not just a sonographic diagnosis, but substantiated by hormonal evaluation and clinical features too.
Endometriosis if more of a clinical diagnosis, confirmed by laparoscopy.
Take care.
