Colposcopy is a visual exam of your cervix that your physician will likely perform if you receive an abnormal result from a pap smear. Abnormal results might include the presence of HPV (human papillomavirus), cervical dysplasia (precancerous abnormal cells), cervical cancer, or squamous cells. A pap smear is not enough to diagnose the abnormal cells; it is just a screening to detect them. Therefore, more testing is required to check for or rule out HPV, precancerous lesions, or cancer. The colposcopy is usually the first follow-up exam your physician will perform.
Potential reasons for a colposcopy include:
- Viewing the cervix to determine the cause of abnormal Pap tests. If abnormal tissue is found, a biopsy for this tissue is often ordered.
- Check for sores, warts or other issues found around the vagina or cervix.
- Follow up for abnormalities detected in a previous colposcopy, or to see if a previous treatment has been successful.
- If an HPV test shows a high-risk form of HPV is present, colposcopy can be used to check the cervix for problem areas.
Colposcopies can help diagnose several important diseases or conditions:
- Cancer: Cervical cancer, vaginal cancer and vulvar cancer can all be detected by this test
- Cervicitis: This is a condition involving inflammation of the cervix
- Precancerous changes: These can occur in cervical or vaginal tissue, or in the vulva.
