Pap smear, colposcopy, biopsy, endocervical curettage
One of the most important tests for gynecologists is the Papanicolaou or Pope's test for detecting precancerous and cancerous changes in the cervix. If all is well, a gynecological examination, a PAPA test and an ultrasound examination should be performed once a year.
Colposcopic examination is also very short and painless. The gynecologist checks with a special microscope-like device for changes in the cervical cells.
Finally, the interview with the gynecologist will follow, when he will explain everything and, if necessary, write and recommend any treatment or additional examinations and procedures. Cervical biopsy with cervical canal curettage (endocervical curettage) is an intervention that takes tissue samples from suspected cervical and cervical canal sites previously detected by colposcopic examination. Samples of tissue obtained are sent for histopathological analysis.
The following is an ultrasound examination; the probe is introduced into the vagina and the uterus, ovaries and area of the small pelvis are examined in detail.
