Leep Proceedure

A leep proceedure is usually done to detect the severity or presence of cervical cancer, but the leep procedure is not a cure. A thin wire loop electrode attached to the generator is put into the vagina to cut away the abnormal cervical tissue. It takes only 20-30 minutes and can be performed in the physicianís office. The technique allows sending the excised tissue for the further examination. A leep proceedure is usually done to detect the severity or presence of cervical cancer, but the leep procedure is not a cure.

Leep Proceedure

  -  

Cervical Cancer, LEEP Procedure

Abnormal tissues in moderate and severe stages of cervical dysplasia can be treated by several other methods: cryosurgery, laser removal, cone biopsy and some others. It is important to treat this condition before it turns into cervical cancer, which is more difficult to cure. A leep proceedure is usually done to detect the severity or presence of cervical cancer, but the leep procedure is not a cure.
