Colposcopy and management of abnormal pap smears

Colposcopy is a detailed examination of the cervix (the neck of the womb) and vagina. A colposcopy is commonly performed when a pap smear has returned an abnormal result or when there is abnormal bleeding.

Although it sounds confronting, a colposcopy is performed in a respectful and non-threatening atmosphere.

If required, treatment of the cervix can be performed under either general or local anaesthetic. This decision will depend on individual patient’s preference.
