Colposcopy

Colposcopy is a type of cervical cancer test. It lets your doctor get a close-up look at your cervix — the opening to your uterus. It is useful to find abnormal cells in your cervix.

This procedure is nearly pain-free. You might feel pressure when the speculum goes in. It might also sting or burn a little when they wash your cervix with the vinegar-like solution.

Your doctor may recommend colposcopy if a Pap test or pelvic exam revealed abnormalities.

It can be used to diagnose:

  • Genital warts
  • Precancerous changes in the tissue of the vagina
  • Precancerous changes in the tissue of the cervix
  • Inflammation of the cervix (cervicitis)
  • Precancerous changes of the vulva

Colposcopy is a safe procedure that carries very few risks.
