WHAT ARE COLPOSCOPY AND CERVICAL BIOPSY
Colposcopy is a second level examination in the early diagnosis of cervical neoplasia; it allows an accurate visualization of the skin of the vulva, the mucosa (ie the lining surface) of the vagina and the cervix.
If during the colposcopy any abnormal area is highlighted, it is possible to simultaneously take a small sample of tissue (biopsy), which will then be sent to a laboratory for microscopic analysis.
Colposcopy is usually required to thoroughly examine the vaginal mucosa and the cervix in the presence of an abnormal Pap Test.
To perform the colposcopy, the gynecologist uses a magnifying instrument that looks like binoculars, called a colposcope.
The Colposcope amplifies the vision from 2 to 60 times, allowing the doctor to detect anomalies that would have escaped a vision with the naked eye.
Some types of Colposcope are connected to a camera or video camera that allow you to obtain permanent images / videos of the suspicious areas highlighted during the examination.
To perform the colposcopy it is also necessary that the surfaces to be examined are gently dabbed with a cotton swab soaked in acetic acid and an iodized solution (Lugol's solution).
These substances, applied on the mucous membranes under examination, in fact have the ability to highlight any abnormal areas that may be present.
Generally, one or more biopsies are carried out in correspondence with any abnormal areas detected, so that the microscopic analysis of the removed tissue can give a final judgment, that is, whether it is inflammatory cells or cancerous cells.
