40 Years of Quality Care
Colposcopy: A colposcope is an instrument that allows a care provider to inspect the cervix under high magnification. Very small abnormalities can be seen. A biopsy to rule out a more serious process and to treat the lesion may also be performed. These are relatively minor procedures and are performed in our office and do not require hospitalization. If cancer is detected your care provider will discuss the type and extent of the disease with you. Even in patients who have cancer, there is a high rate of complete cure. Prompt treatment and closely following your care provider’s recommendations are vital.
Cyst: a closed, fluid-filled sac embedded in tissue, usually on ovaries. A cyst can be normal with ovulation, yet is abnormal with bleeding or tumor.
