What does endometriosis look like: atypical implants, microscopic endometriosis, endometriomas, adhesions WHAT DOES ENDOMETRIOSIS LOOK LIKE: ATYPICAL IMPLANTS, MICROSCOPIC ENDOMETRIOSIS, ENDOMETRIOMAS, ADHESIONS
The newly recognised implants are often called atypical implants but they are probably younger implants which, as yet, have very little old blood deposited in them.
Atypical implants are usually very small and are sometimes difficult to see. They may occur alone or in clusters and may be clear, white, yellow, orange or red in colour.
Microscopic endometriosis-In the early stages of endometriosis the implants may be too small to be seen without the use of a microscope. This type of endometriosis is often referred to as microscopic endometriosis.
Endometriomas-Endometrial cysts on the ovary are also known as endometriomas. They are usually less than two or three centimetres in diameter but occasionally may be 10 or more centimetres in diameter. They may be embedded in the ovary itself or they may lie on its surface. They are sometimes referred to as 'chocolate cysts' because they contain old dark blood which often has the appearance and consistency of melted chocolate.
Adhesions-Adhesions are bands of tissue which bind or matt together organs of the pelvic cavity and they may be formed as a result of endometriosis. They may have the appearance of sticky toffee which has been stretched from one organ to another.
