Colposcopy

Colposcopy is a procedure to closely examine your cervix, vagina and vulva for signs of disease. A colposcope, is a large electric microscope, that allows the physician to clearly see the cervix with a bright light. This procedure is done in the office.

Dr. Levine may recommend colposcopy if your Pap test has shown abnormal results. It allows for screening of cancer of vagina and cervix or HPV exposure.

If the doctor finds an unusual area of cells during colposcopy, a sample of tissue can be collected for laboratory testing (biopsy).

The majority of abnormal Pap smears are not caused by cervical cancer. The more likely cause of abnormal Pap smear results is inflammation or a vaginal infection.
