Colposcopy

Colposcopy is a procedure used to magnify the cervix and help diagnose abnormalities. A vulvar colposcopy typically examines lesions on the vulva and is often used to identify cancer, HPV, and vulvar pain causing conditions. The colposcope is a microscope that can help analyze small abnormalities. The exam itself is similar to a pap smear in that a speculum is inserted and the cervix may be cleaned. The colposcope is then placed to view the area at 10 to 40 times its normal size. If any abnormalities are noted, a biopsy of the tissue may be done. A colposcopy is a very safe procedure with few complications. Light bleeding or discharge for up to a week after the exam is normal. 

Colposcopy is a way of looking at the cervix through a special magnifying device called a colposcope. It shines a light onto the vagina and cervix. A colposcope can enlarge the normal view by 2–60 times. This exam allows the doctor to find problems that cannot be seen by the eye alone.

  • what to expect before, during, and after the procedure

Reasons for Colposcopy

Colposcopy is done when a Pap test result shows abnormal changes in the cells of the cervix. Colposcopy provides more information about the abnormal cells.

Colposcopy also may be used to further assess other problems:

  • Genital warts on the cervix
  • Cervicitis (an inflamed cervix)
  • Benign (not cancer) growths, such as polyps
  • Pain
  • Bleeding
Sometimes colposcopy may need to be done more than once. It also can be used to check the result of a treatment.

The Procedure

Colposcopy is done like a Pap test in a doctor’s office. You may be referred to another doctor or to a special clinic to have it done. more...
