Endometriosis on the lungs?

I was diagnosed with extensive endo earlier this year. I've had a persistent cough for 10 years (on and off, though increasingly more 'on'). I'm wondering if the two are connected. Is it even possible to get endo on the lungs? And if so, how would the doctors diagnose this?

My sister suffers from endometriosis, she has had two keyhole surgeries which didn't work for her, so she was advised to have the mirena coil fitted. You might find this iste useful useful, I think it says that on a rare occassion it can travel to your lungs.
