COLPOSCOPY AND CERVICAL BIOPSY
Colposcopy is usually performed after certain types of abnormal Pap tests.
It can also be performed to:
- Check a sore or other problem (such as genital warts).
- Follow up on abnormal areas seen on a previous colposcopy.
- Look at the cervix for if HPV is present or if a patient shows high predisposition to HPV.
