Fibroids are growths in the womb. Endometriosis is bits of the wombg lining which have come through the tubes and are lying in the pelvis. It sounds like the diagnosis is not quite certain. A hysteroscopy and laparoscopy will help with the diagnosis. Endometriosis can be burnt off at the time of laparoscopy.
