A colposcopy is a medical examination used to view the cervix and examine lesions on the vaginal walls with a colposcope (magnifying optical device). During the examination, the physician may also take tissue samples for analysis, and this is called a biopsy.
- A colposcopy is usually performed after abnormal or unclear PAP test results or when lesions are detected. These findings may be caused by inflammation, vaginal infection, pre-cancer or cervical cancer.
- A colposcopy allows the physician to see these lesions in detail and to determine their nature and severity.
