Abnormal Pap Smears and Colposcopy Beaumont TX

LEEP FOR ABNORMAL PAP SMEARS

LEEP is a treatment for abnormal cells on the cervix. LEEP — short for loop electrosurgical excision procedure — removes abnormal tissue by cutting it away using a thin wire loop that carries an electrical current. It may be performed after abnormal cells are found during a Pap test, colposcopy, or biopsy.

COLPOSCOPY

The cervix is the lower, narrow part of the uterus (womb). A special magnifying device with a light, called a colposcope, can be used to visually examine the cervix and vagina.

Colposcopy is usually done when a:

  • Pap test is abnormal
  • Human papillomavirus (HPV) test is positive for certain subtypes that place you at an increased risk for developing cancer

This procedure can be used to:

  • Help diagnose cervical cancer or precancerous changes
  • Give more information about abnormal cells found on a pap smear
  • Find the location where a tissue biopsy should be done
  • Monitor treatment of abnormalities of the cervix
  • Allow a visual exam of the cervix, vaginal walls, or vulva
