BC and treatment for endometriosis or fertility treatment

I am keen to know if anyone knows of any evidence to suggest that endometriosis or the treatment of, or undergoing fertility treatment, increases the risk of BC. I suppose we are always looking for a 'reason' and, as someone who had all the 'low risk factors' I just wondered if there was anything published in relation to this.

I also had ro-accutane treatment about 3 years ago which is a strong drug used to treat acne and is used as a last resort. It worked wonders for the acne, but I have thought lately about the 'what ifs' there also.

I look forward to hearing anyone elses experiences/thoughts. J.
