Introduction of section / unit:
The colposcopy ward (kol-POS-kuh-pee) of Omid Hospital is able to provide services to patients with problems and abnormalities of the cervix, vagina and vulva using a colposcope.
If the doctor finds an unusual area of cells during the colposcopy, a sample of tissue can be collected for a laboratory test (biopsy). Your doctor may recommend the test if your Pap smear or pelvic exam shows abnormalities.
Services and specialized activities of the department / unit:
Colposcopy is a test that your doctor uses to look at a special type of microscope called a cervical colposcope. This microscope looks like a pair of binoculars on a stand. The colposcope does not enter your body. Colposcopy is a safe and low-risk procedure. The risk of complications from biopsy, such as heavy bleeding, infection, and pelvic pain during the test, is very low. In addition to a closer examination of the cervix, your doctor may take a very small sample (biopsy) of any affected area of your cervix.
