Wait? What?!

You read that right. Another instance of cutaneous Endometriosis: this time between a woman’s breasts! Yeah yeah, I know cutaneous Endo is SUPER DUPER rare…but it does happen…

On December 17, 2019, the Journal of Endometriosis and Pelvic Pain Disorders published an abstract online. The physicians, surgery center, and laboratory are all located in Iran, so I’m assuming the patient is also located in Iran. I don’t have access to the full literature, but the here’s my brief synopsis on the abstract.

A 24-year-old woman complained of a lesion between her breasts that would occasionally discharge fluid. She underwent various diagnostic tests and eventually the lesion was excised and biopsied. The abstract leads one to believe it was diagnosed as Endometriosis.

Again, I cannot stress enough: if you have a weird lump, bump, mass, or lesion where it shouldn’t be: go to your doc and get it checked out. If you haven’t already read my blog on Endometriosis and the skin, please go give it a read for several other examples. Thanks and have a great day!
