Cervix Speculum

A cervix speculum is used when performing a pap to detect HPV or an ASCUS reading. Abnormalities such as retroversion, prolapsed uterus, ectropion, cancer, polyps, pus, or bleeding, inflammation, thickening, edematous, granularity, growths, and lacerations (traumas) may be observed. During an inspection, color (normally smooth pink epithelium), position, and nature of discharge are noted during this type of examination.
