Colpo

The term, colpo, is short for colposcopy, will determine if a cone biopsy is necessary when the human papillomavirus is found. This examination is usually performed after several abnormal Pap smear tests to determine the nature of the problem. To perform such examination the cervix is cleaned with a vinegar solution, which makes the abnormal areas white when seen through a colposcope. The term, colpo, is short for colposcopy, will determine if a cone biopsy is necessary when the human papillomavirus is found.

Cone Biopsy, Human Papillomavirus

Tiny samples of tissue (biopsies) are taken from the abnormal areas for a pathologist to examine under the microscope. If the affected area is not very large, it can be treated during the same visit with a biopsy or LEEP (loop electrosurgical excision procedure.) The term, colpo, is short for colposcopy, will determine if a cone biopsy is necessary when the human papillomavirus is found.
