Irregular spotting, pelvic pain, and other similar concerns can indicate a potentially serious condition. When it comes to your intimate health, taking chances is never advised. At Cohen Medical Practice we provide diagnostic options such as PAP tests to help you get a clearer understanding of your health. If your test indicates atypical glandular cells, we can provide you with a precision colposcopy procedure to get a firm diagnosis. This treatment is designed to extract a tissue sample for testing and can help us detect cervical cancer and determine the next steps needed to help you feel better.
What Is a Precision Colposcopy?
A precision colposcopy is done to help us assess the health of your cervix. This simple procedure involves the use of a speculum and colposcope for diagnostic purposes. In some cases, a biopsy may be performed during this operation in order to extract a sample. At Cohen Medical Practice, we do everything possible to attain clear diagnostic answers while minimizing discomfort.
What Does This Procedure Address?
While this procedure isn’t meant as a cure or treatment option, it can provide us with vital information. An examination of the cervix can reveal both the cause of symptoms and help identify issues that would have otherwise gone unnoticed. After performing a precision colposcopy, we can determine whether surgery is necessary or not.
What Does This Treatment Involve?
Our precision colposcopy involves three simple steps. First, the vaginal walls are separated using a speculum. This may cause some mild discomfort, but is necessary to help us see the cervix. Then, the cervix is cleaned with a special solution. Finally, a coloscope will be used to examine the vagina, vulva, and cervix for any abnormal signs. Specifically, we will be looking for cell changes, growths, or inflammation.
What Can I Expect After a Precision Colposcopy?
If a tissue sample was extracted during the colposcopy, we will perform a series of tests to determine the danger it poses. If atypical glandular cells or indicators of human papillomavirus (HPV) are found, we will work with you to determine the best treatment options. Our NYC team is dedicated to giving you the best care above all else. If you have any concerns or require help, we can always be reached via our 24/7 hotline.
