Colposcopy

Colposcopy is a detailed examination of the cervix using a special microscope called a colposcope. It is required as part of the NHS Cervical Screening Programme to investigate women who have had abnormal cervical smears and to help decide if treatment is needed.

Most women who have an abnormal smear will not develop cervical cancer, and the colposcopic examination helps to identify the women who are at high risk and arrange for them to be treated before the abnormality becomes serious.

The unit also sees women who have been noted to have an abnormality or abnormal symptoms of the cervix, vagina or vulva.
