You may need to have a colposcopy if:
An abnormal smear result isn’t usually anything to worry about, but it does need to be investigated. Your gynaecologist can use the colposcopy to check your cervix and identify the cause of the problem. It can help her to make a diagnosis and find the right treatment. The colposcopy can confirm the presence of abnormal cells that could be precancerous. If you have abnormal cells, there is a risk that they could develop into cervical cancer if they are left in place. The doctor may need to remove them to prevent this from happening.
A colposcopy is an examination of your cervix using a special microscope called a colposcope.
The results of your colposcopy will determine whether you need any additional tests or treatment.
Miss Arafa will recommend removing the cells if there is a risk that they could develop into cervical cancer. She will advise you on the options for removal and perform the procedure for you. The abnormal cells can usually be removed during a colposcopy with a local anaesthetic, but sometimes surgery is required to remove larger areas of tissue.
If you need a colposcopy after an abnormal smear test result, you can make an appointment with an experienced gynaecologist at the Venus Women's Clinic London. You will receive the highest quality care from Miss Arafa. It is very easy to request an appointment online or by phone. Same day appointments can be arranged if you want to see the doctor quickly.
