cyst, growth on the uterus or endometriosis
I would like to know whether cysts or growths on the uterus or endometriosis would show up on an x-ray taken in that area, or whether an abnormality in bloodwork would show up if one had these problems...

Thank you

VRBM, it’s unlikely that any of them would show up on an x-ray and definitely not on blood tests. The best would be to go for a sonar (ultrasound) examination, as it would clearly show a cyst or a growth on the uterus. A laparoscopy will of course be able to differentiate between all three. Good luck.
