What is Endometriosis of the urinary tract?
Urinary tract (bladder) Endometriosis occurs when Endometriosis is found on the surface (known as superficial Endometriosis) or deep inside the wall of the urinary bladder or the urethra.
When Endometriosis is found in this area of the body, it can begin to disrupt the process in which we store and release urine.
As Endometriosis progresses, occasionally it can affect other urinary organs, such as the ureter. The lower part of the ureter which lies inside the pelvis is more likely to be affected by Endometriosis than the upper part of the ureter that lies above the pelvis.
The kidneys are also located above the pelvis.
