Colpolscopy

Colpolscopy

A colpolscopy is usually recommended when symptoms including abnormal vaginal discharge, pain, and growths on the cervix are present. This procedure involves an examination of the cervix under a magnification with a help of a colposcope. A solution of acetic acid is applied to the cervix and it is examined with a bright light. Abnormal areas remain white and light doesn’t pass through them. A colpolscopy is usually recommended when symptoms including abnormal vaginal discharge, pain, and growths on the cervix are present.
