Colposcopy is a medical procedure that allows your New Line Gyn to view your cervix in more detail than is possible during a routine physical exam.
The colposcope is an instrument equipped with a light and a magnifier that passes up your vagina to give a clear view of the cervix and enable the identification of any abnormalities. Your provider at New Line Gyn can perform a colposcopy as a simple and convenient in-office procedure.
Your provider at New Line Gyn might advise that you undergo colposcopy if the results of your Pap smear show there are changes in the cells on your cervix. A regular Pap smear is a vital test that picks up any indications of cervical cancer so you can receive treatment before the disease takes hold. After testing a cell sample taken from your cervix, any abnormality needs investigating further, although, in the majority of cases, the changes seen in cervical cell samples aren’t due to cancer.
Other reasons why you might need to undergo colposcopy include:
During the colposcopy procedure, your gynecologist can also take a biopsy, which is a small sample of tissue, if they see anything that needs further analysis.
