Screening for cervical cancer: a review of women's attitudes, knowledge, and behaviour. (1/413)

The United Kingdom (UK) cervical screening programme has been successful in securing participation of a high proportion of targeted women, and has seen a fall in mortality rates of those suffering from cervical cancer. There remains, however, a significant proportion of unscreened women and, of women in whom an abnormality is detected, many will not attend for colposcopy. The present work reviews the psychological consequences of receiving an abnormal cervical smear result and of secondary screening and treatment, and examines reasons for women's non-participation in the screening programme. Psychological theories of screening behavior are used to elucidate women's reactions and to suggest methods of increasing participation, of improving the quality of the service, and of reducing women's anxiety. A literature search identified studies that examine factors influencing women's participation in the screening programme, their psychological reaction to the receipt of an abnormal cervical smear result, and experiences of colposcopy. Reasons for non-participation include administrative failures, unavailability of a female screener, inconvenient clinic times, lack of awareness of the test's indications and benefits, considering oneself not to be at risk of developing cervical cancer, and fear of embarrassment, pain, or the detection of cancer. The receipt of an abnormal result and referral for colposcopy cause high levels of distress owing to limited understanding of the meaning of the smear test; many women believe the test aims to detect existing cervical cancer. The quality of the cervical screening service can be enhanced by the provision of additional information, by improved quality of communication, and by consideration of women's health beliefs. This may result in increased participation in, and satisfaction with, the service.  (+info)

Factors influencing default at a hospital colposcopy clinic. (2/413)

OBJECTIVE: To identify factors reducing compliance at diagnosis, treatment, and review stages among women referred with abnormal cervical smears to a hospital colposcopy clinic. DESIGN: Retrospective analysis of sociodemographic data from hospital notes of the attenders and defaulters during one year (1989-90) and prospective collection of information by structured interviews of a sample of defaulters and attenders during five months (May-September 1990). SETTING: One hospital colposcopy clinic. PATIENTS: 238 women defaulting on two consecutive occasions and 188 attending regularly (retrospective analysis) and a subset of 40 defaulters and 24 attenders (interview sample). MAIN MEASURES: Sociodemographic data and interview responses about attitudes, behaviour, choice, accessibility cultural understanding, communications, and emotional response. RESULTS: 22 (12%) women defaulted at diagnosis, 24(13%) at treatment, 39(21%) at the first check up after treatment, and 84(45%) at the review stage; 19(10%) defaulted from the first check up after diagnostic examination revealed no need for treatment. Age and social class differed between the two groups. 181(76%) defaulters were under 30 compared with 91(48%) attenders; 14(6%) compared with 41(23%) were over 40(p < 0.001). The proportion of women in social classes 4 and 5 was 33%(20/60) for defaulters and 21%(25/120) for attenders (p < 0.05) and unemployed was 66%(158/238) and 36%(68/188) respectively. 63(28%) defaulters were pregnant compared with 11(6%) attenders (p < 0.001). More defaulters came from gynaecology or antenatal clinics. Most defaulters (93%) had child care responsibilities and they knew and understood less about colposcopy. Their explicit reasons for defaulting included child care commitments and fear and their implicit reasons lack of understanding, inaccessibility of information, and staff attitudes. CONCLUSIONS: Compliance may be improved by promoting women's understanding of treatment and encouraging health professionals to develop a service more sensitive to the various needs of women in different socioeconomic groups.  (+info)

Is default from colposcopy a problem, and if so what can we do? A systematic review of the literature. (3/413)

It has been reported that many women referred to outpatient colposcopy clinics fail to attend for their appointments. The aim of this paper is to search the literature to assess the extent of default from colposcopy and to identify interventions, suitable for implementation within primary care, to reduce the proportion of women defaulting. Searches were performed on MEDLINE, PsychLIT, Bids and Cancerlit from 1986 to September 1997 using the terms colposcopy or cervical/Pap smear in association with default, non-attendance, adherence, patient compliance, treatment refusal, patient dropouts, attendance, barriers or intervention. The inclusion criteria for primary papers were that they contained data that enables the calculation of default rates for colposcopy or the results of interventions aimed at improving the default rates. Thirteen publications describing default rates and four describing interventions were included as primary papers. Combining the data from these studies suggests default rates of 3%, 11%, and 12% for assessment/treatment visits, first review, and second review respectively. The intervention studies suggested a need to tailor the intervention to the population and the type of information to suit the individual. Varying definitions make comparison of default rates difficult, and the use of a crude non-attendance rate may result in an overestimate of default rates. The vast majority of women invited to colposcopy eventually attend. It is questionable if there is a need for interventions to increase compliance. Where necessary, greater cooperation across the primary/secondary care interface and use of the extended primary care team may be a more cost-effective means of increasing compliance.  (+info)

HPV testing in the evaluation of the minimally abnormal Papanicolaou smear. (4/413)

Minor cytologic abnormalities of the cervix, such as atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance (ASCUS), are vastly more common than high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions or invasive cancer. Current guidelines for the management of ASCUS include repeating the Papanicolaou (Pap) smear at specific intervals, referring all patients for colposcopy or using an adjunctive test such as hybrid capture human papillomavirus (HPV) testing or cervicography. The usefulness of the Pap smear is limited by its considerable false-negative rate and its dependence on clinician and laboratory performance. Colposcopy is a highly sensitive procedure, but many patients with ASCUS have normal colposcopic findings. The hybrid capture test not only measures quantitative HPV load but also detects both oncogenic and nononcogenic HPV types, thereby increasing the probability that serious cervical disease is not missed. Hybrid capture sampling is simple to perform, and positive results are strongly associated with cervical dysplasia. HPV testing in women with ASCUS can be used as an adjunctive test to identify those with HPV-associated disease; it can also serve as a quality assurance measure. Together, repeat Pap smears and HPV testing should identify most patients with underlying cervical dysplasia. Combined testing may also minimize the number of unnecessary colposcopic examinations in women who have no disease.  (+info)

A matched prospective study of human immunodeficiency virus serostatus, human papillomavirus DNA, and cervical lesions detected by cytology and colposcopy. (5/413)

OBJECTIVE: To compare the prevalence and type of human papillomavirus (HPV) infections in the genital tract of human-immunodeficiency-virus- (HIV) seropositive and -seronegative women matched for cytology and to examine prospectively the relationship of HPV DNA, colposcopic findings and cervical squamous intraepithelial lesions (SIL) in these matched seropositive and seronegative cohorts. METHODS: A matched prospective study of HIV-seropositive and -seronegative women undergoing cytologic screening, colposcopy, and testing for HPV DNA and other infections at each visit. RESULTS: Twenty-three HIV-seropositive women were matched with 23 seronegative women by cervical cytology reading, lifetime number of sexual partners, age, and follow-up length. Fourteen pairs of these women had follow-up visits every 4 months, for 56 and 53 total visits in seropositive and seronegative women, respectively. After matching, the groups had a similar overall prevalence of HPV DNA and of HPV oncogenic (high risk) types at baseline. On follow up, HIV-seropositive women were more likely than seronegative women to develop SIL (38% vs. 10%), less likely to have negative cytology (34% vs. 60%, overall P = 0.03), more visits with HPV DNA detected (68% vs. 40% P = 0.04), and more visits with multiple HPV DNA types detected (18% vs. 0%, P = 0.02). Colposcopic lesions in the seropositive women were more likely to have sharp borders or mosaicism or to be thick white (P = 0.009). CONCLUSIONS: After matching for baseline Papanicolaou smear readings, these data suggest that over time seropositive women have more visits that yield abnormal cytology, more persistent HPV DNA detection, and more colposcopic abnormalities than seronegative women.  (+info)

The effects of three nonoxynol-9 preparations on vaginal flora and epithelium. (6/413)

To evaluate the effects of nonoxynol-9 (N-9) on the vaginal flora and epithelium, 48 women (16 in each group) were evaluated by use of quantitative vaginal cultures and colposcopy. at baseline and at 0.5, 4, 24, 48, and 72 h after insertion of one of three N-9 preparations (4% gel [Conceptrol], 3.5% gel [Advantage-24], or a 28% vaginal contraceptive film). The proportion positive for H2O2+ or H2O2- lactobacilli did not change significantly with any of the preparations, but lactobacilli concentrations decreased transiently. Both the proportion of women with Gardnerella vaginalis and the concentration of G. vaginalis decreased transiently. The proportion of women with Escherichia coli increased with the 4% gel, and the concentration increased with all preparations. The number with anaerobic gram-negative rods increased, although the concentrations decreased. Symptoms and colposcopic abnormalities were rare. Changes in levels of vaginal bacteria were transient after single applications of N-9, but adverse effects may be enhanced with frequent, chronic use.  (+info)

Cervical screening interval: costing the options in one health authority. (7/413)

BACKGROUND: This is a study of the costs of the cervical screening programme in one health authority with a mixed three and five year, and thus inequitable, cervical screening interval. The costs of three year and five yearly screening are compared, and considered in terms of likely numbers of averted cases of and deaths from cervical cancer. METHODS: The study uses an activity-based costing procedure to calculate the component and total costs of the cervical screening programme. RESULTS: The main costs of the cervical screening programme are the costs of taking and processing smears. In 1994-1995 the total cost of a three year recall policy was 768 570 pound silver per 100000 eligible women and that of a five year recall policy was 476768 pound silver per 100000 eligible women. Best estimates of the numbers of cases of and deaths from invasive cervical cancer averted by three over five yearly screening are 1.4 and 0.7 per 100000 eligible women, respectively. Because of uncertainty regarding colposcopy costs a sensitivity analysis was carried out, giving a range of cost differences between three and five yearly screening of 278477 pound silver and 351 768 pound silver. CONCLUSIONS: The health service costs of three yearly screening are considerably greater than those of five yearly screening. Despite this, a significant proportion of smear-takers are screening more frequently than five yearly, with implications for anxiety of screened women, as well as health service costs.  (+info)

Variations in vaginal epithelial surface appearance determined by colposcopic inspection in healthy, sexually active women. (8/413)

A total of 107 sexually active women, aged 18-35 years, was recruited through family planning clinics in four centres in different countries. Each woman underwent two or three gentle but thorough and systematic vaginal inspections using a consistent technique with colposcopic magnification over a 4-6 month period to look for changes in vaginal and cervical appearance which might be related to sexual intercourse, tampon use, contraceptive method used, cigarette smoking or other environmental factors. Obvious changes in appearance were photographed at x10 magnification. These 'appearances' or 'conditions' were classified according to a modification of the recommendations of a workshop sponsored by the World Health Organization, the Population Council and the Conrad Program. Most of these alterations in the appearance of the vaginal epithelium were judged to be of such minor clinical importance that they have been termed 'conditions' or 'changes in appearance' rather than 'lesions'. In all, 56 'conditions' or 'appearances' were noted in 314 inspections, the commonest being petechiae (53.6%). Potentially significant conditions justifying the term 'lesions' (three microulcerations, two ecchymoses, five abrasions and one mucosal tear; 3.5% of inspections) usually healed spontaneously and disappeared rapidly. The incidence of these conditions was highest when the inspections followed intercourse in the previous 24 h (25.2 versus 14.2%; P < 0.0008), or tampon use (32.4 versus 15.9%; P < 0. 0001). These processes may be regarded as a reflection of regular minor trauma to the vaginal epithelium.  (+info)

About Colposcopy Market. Colposcopy is a medical diagnostic procedure to examine an illuminated, magnified view of the cervix and the tissues of the vagina and vulva. Many premalignant lesions and malignant lesions in these areas have discernible characteristics which can be detected through the examination. It is done using a colposcopy, which provides an enlarged view of the areas, allowing the colposcopies to visually distinguish normal from abnormal appearing tissue and take directed biopsies for further pathological examination. The main goal of colposcopy is to prevent cervical cancer by detecting precancerous lesions early and treating them..

The most common indication for colposcopy is an abnormal cervical cancer screening test. Women with a Pap smear report of atypical squamous cells, cannot exclude HSIL (ASC-H) or low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (LSIL) or worse should be evaluated by colposcopy. Women with atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance (ASCUS) on cytology may have cytology repeated after 6 months or undergo HPV testing or be directly referred for colposcopy. Visual inspection with acetic acid (VIA)-positive women may have colposcopy or direct treatment, depending on the facilities available. Women positive on an HPV test can have triaging with cytology or VIA or may be directly referred for colposcopy ...
Colposcopy is a gynecological procedure that illuminates and magnifies the vulva, vaginal walls, and uterine cervix in order to detect and examine abnormalities of these structures. The cervix is the base of the womb (uterus) and leads out to the birth canal (vagina). During colposcopy, special tests [acetic acid wash, use of color filters, and sampling (biopsy) of tissues] can be done. Colposcopy is not to be confused with culdoscopy, which is the insertion of an instrument through the wall of the vagina in order to view the pelvic area behind the vagina.. Finally, colposcopy allows tissue sampling (biopsy) that is targeted to the abnormal areas. In fact, the biopsy of abnormal areas is a critical part of colposcopy because treatment will depend on how severe the abnormality is on the biopsy sample. After colposcopy and biopsies, a chemical is applied to the biopsy area to prevent bleeding (spotting). As part of the biopsy procedure, endocervical curettage (sampling of the tissues within the ...

The Atlas of Colposcopy: Principles and Practice has been developed keeping in mind the evolving concepts and the changing scenarios. The atlas deals with the basics and then guides the learner through the intricacies of detecting the changes, differentiating neoplastic from the non-neoplastic conditions and documenting the findings. It illustrates the use of the colposcopy terminology recently adopted by the International Federation of Cervical Pathology & Colposcopy (IFCPC) and also the Swede system of scoring.. We hope that the freely accessible resource will prove to be a very valuable learning tool for the students as well as the practitioners of colposcopy and management of cervical neoplasias.. ...

BACKGROUND: Prior to the development of cervical cancer abnormal cervical cells can be detected on a cervical smear. The usual practice following an abnormal cervical smear is to perform colposcopy. Colposcopy is the visualisation of the cervix using a binocular microscope. Women experience high levels of anxiety and negative emotional responses at all stages of cervical screening. High levels of anxiety before and during colposcopy can have adverse consequences, including pain and discomfort during the procedure and high loss to follow-up rates. This review evaluates interventions designed to reduce anxiety levels during colposcopic examination. OBJECTIVES: To compare the efficacy of various interventions aimed at reducing anxiety during colposcopic examination in women. SEARCH METHODS: We searched the Cochrane Gynaecological Cancer Group Trials Register, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL), Issue 3, 2010, MEDLINE and EMBASE up to July 2010. We also searched registers of clinical
Colposcopy and LLETZ on Bridges Clinic | A colposcopy is carried out to examine your cervix (neck of your womb).

For prediction of CIN1 accuracy of Colposcopy are: Se-61%, Sp-88%, PPV-77%, and NPV-77%. In case of CIN2+: Se:84%, Sp:70%, PPV-78% and NPV-76%. Overall results are: Se- 72%, Sp-86%, PPV-76% and NPV-83%. ...
A colposcopy, then, uses a colposcope to get a better view of abnormal cervical cells than a health care provider could obtain via unaided visual examination or a Pap test.. Depending on what the provider sees during the colposcopy, a cervical biopsy or endocervical curettage might also be performed. Both procedures involve removing small amounts of potentially abnormal cervical tissue and sending the samples to a pathology lab.. How should I prepare for my colposcopy?. While most colposcopies are done in a standard doctors office, you may be referred to another provider - often a specialist who has a colposcope in their office - for the procedure. At present, Planned Parenthood Arizona is able to provide colposcopies at three of its health centers - in Flagstaff, Central Phoenix, and Tucson - with hopes to expand service locations in the coming year.. Planned Parenthood advises scheduling the procedure for a time when the patient isnt expecting to be on their period. They also recommend that ...

We studied histologic examination-related factors contributing to false-negative colposcopic biopsy results. Patients positive for high-risk human papillomavirus (HPV) DNA with negative cervical histologic findings were identified between January 2002 and December 2003. Three additional H&E-stained levels were obtained when the original diagnosis was confirmed on review. Patients with atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance (ASC) Papanicolaou test results, positive HPV DNA results, and negative cervical histologic findings accounted for 4.5% of all ASC smears submitted for HPV DNA testing. Slides and tissue blocks were available for 95 cases; 4% had focal HPV infection or mild dysplasia. When deeper levels were examined, 31% had clinically significant lesions: HPV infection or cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) 1, 19%; CIN 2/3, 8%; and dysplasia, not otherwise specified, 3%. Of the remaining patients, follow-up revealed squamous abnormalities in 25%. About 5% of patients with ...

A colposcopy is a subjective examination. It goes without saying that it must be performed by a well-trained doctor. The accuracy of the diagnosis depends on many parameters. The doctor takes into consideration the findings of the other tests, as well as the patients history. In cases where there is a risk of missing cancer (for example when the Pap test shows precancerous lesions − HSIL and extensive lesions are visible during the colposcopy), it is necessary not to rely only on what one sees in the colposcopy and isolated biopsies, but also to remove part of the cervix.. ...
A colposcopy is performed to help diagnose cervical, vaginal or vulvar cancer, genital warts, cervicitis, and to examine pre-cancerous tissue in the cervix or vagina. Your doctor may recommend a colposcopy if your pap smear or pelvic exam indicate abnormalities..

Colposcopy is the examination of the female genitals (cervix, vagina, or vulva) with an instrument called a colposcope. It is usually done to evaluate any lesions suspected of representing abnormal tissue growth or cancer. This may be an abnormal Pap smear or any lesion which does not resolve spontaneously in a reasonable amount of time as decided by the clinician. The colposcope is an instrument which permits magnification of lesions of the genital tract. A mild solution of acetic acid is applied to areas of the genital tract and abnormal areas turn white enhancing the quality of the colposcopic examination. All surface (epithelial) lesions become more distinct and structures including the cells on the wall of the cervix become more distinguishable using this method. After gross microscopic examination of the affected tissue for acetowhite changes and blood vessel patterns, tiny samples of tissue (biopsies) are removed and sent to pathology for histological (microscopic) evaluation. Colposcopy ...

I am 29 years old and had my second smear with my general practitioner. I received results, which showed that smear is abnormal and positive for high-risk papillomavirus. I was quite nervous as havent had any problems before. Googled it and called Mr Raza secretary. She booked me for an immediate appointment the next day. Mr Raza was extremely reassuring and explained what the results meant and the next steps I need. He was able to do colposcopy at the same time.. Colposcopy was carried out. He was very reassuring and kept explaining all the steps to me. He explained the changes, biopsy test and its implications. He was speaking to me throughout and explained the changes on the cervix, therefore, needed a biopsy to confirm the abnormal cells. Mr Raza called me after three days to explain the results, which had shown CIN2.. This time I was not as worried as I knew I was in good hands. He explained to me the treatment needed and how it is 99% effective for removing the abnormal cells. The risks ...
Positive predictive value of colposcopy. Positive predictive value (PPV) describes the proportion of patients with a positive diagnostic test result subsequently found to have true disease on confirmatory testing. We examined the subgroup of women classified as having CIN 1 or more severe lesion on colposcopy and identified the proportion in this subgroup who had CIN 1 or more severe lesion confirmed by histological sampling (biopsy or LLETZ) to calculate PPV. The PPV of colposcopy in predicting a histological diagnosis of CIN 1 or more severe lesion was 82.6% among women who had diagnostic tissue sampling and for whom adequate colposcopy results were available (1 787 of the sample of 2 031 women). PPV remained robust when stratified by self-reported HIV status. In HIV-positive women with colposcopy findings and histological results available (N=897) the PPV was 83.0%, and in HIV-negative women (N=537) it was 81.1%.. Discussion. Primary health centre data on recently diagnosed HIV-positive women ...

A colposcopy is typically done as a follow-up to an abnormal Pap smear. Using a speculum, a colposcopy uses a magnifying instrument to view the cervix.
A pap smear is a common screening tool for cervical cancer in most countries with comprehensive health systems. If this test is positive, meaning abnormal, the doctor generally examines the cervix through a colposcope, which allows for a closer look for problems that cannot be seen with the naked eye. A new cancer detection device, consisting of a cellphone app, a smartphone, and a clip-on lens may soon replace colposcopy, or at least substitute for it when a colposcope is not available. The device, made by MobileOCT, won the start-up company first prize at Vodafones Wireless Innovation Project Competition, held last week.. Due to the cost of video colposcopes, which run between $10,000 and $14,000, health providers, particularly in small communities or developing countries, often resort to examining the cervix using a flashlight for lack of the proper equipment. When abnormal tissue is found during a standard colposcopy a biopsy is usually done. Due to the inaccuracy of using a flashlight and ...
After a colposcopy procedure, you may rest for a few minutes before going home.. If you have a colposcopy with a biopsy, the recovery process will vary, depending on the type of biopsy performed and the type of anesthesia (if any) used.. If you received regional or general anesthesia, you will be taken to the recovery room for observation. Once your blood pressure, pulse, and breathing are stable and you are alert, you will be taken to your hospital room or discharged to your home. If this procedure was performed on an outpatient basis, you should plan to have another person drive you home.. You may want to wear a sanitary pad for bleeding. If a biopsy was performed, it is normal to have some mild cramping, spotting, and dark or black-colored discharge for several days. The dark discharge is from the medication applied to your cervix to control bleeding.. If a biopsy was performed, you may be instructed not to douche, use tampons, or have intercourse for one week after the procedure, or for a ...

It has also been observed that about 6 in every ten women have abnormal cells in their cervix. This is known as cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) or cervical Glandular intraepithelial neoplasia (CGIN) - these are not cancerous cells, but there is a risk that they can turn cancerous if they are not treated. It is possible to detect abnormal cells when colposcopy is carried out, but a biopsy would be needed to determine the type of abnormal cells and to state if it can become cancerous or whether treatment is necessary.. Below are the different types of abnormal cells and what they mean:. CIN 1: It is unlikely that these abnormal cells would become cancerous, and they can go away on their own. No treatment is needed, although you would be invited for a cervical screening test in 12 months to know if the cells have disappeared.. CIN 2: This type has a moderate chance of becoming cancerous and treatment will be recommended to remove them.. CIN 3: These cells have a high chance of becoming ...

WHAT IS A COLPOSCOPE?. The colposcope is an instrument that looks like a pair of binoculars mounted on a tripod, and is used to magnify the tissues of the cervix, vagina, or vulva. This enables the examiner to see minor changes in the color of these tissues and surface blood vessel patterns, which are not visible to the naked eye. It is these subtle differences, which help to distinguish healthy tissue from abnormal tissue. The colposcope is usually used to evaluate women with an abnormal Pap smear. The Pap smear is a screening test and looks at the characteristics of individual cells. The colposcope allows us to identify any microscopically abnormal areas to biopsy for more thorough tissue evaluation by a pathologist..

Y1 - 2017. N2 - Despite the existence of patterns able to discriminate between consensual and non-consensual intercourse, the relevance of genital lesions in the corroboration of a legal rape complaint is currently under debate in many countries. The testimony of the physicians when assessing these lesions has been questioned in court due to several factors (e.g. a lack of comprehensive knowledge of lesions, wide spectrum of background area, among others). Thereby, it is relevant to provide automated tools to support the decision process in an objective manner. In this work, we compare traditional handcrafted features and deep learning techniques in the automated processing of colposcopic images for genital injury detection. Positive results where achieved by both paradigms in segmentation and classification ...

The history of colposcopy begins in Hamburg, Germany, in the early 1920s. German gynaecologists were beginning to understand that cancer of the cervix might have a precursor condition, which they termed carcinomatous surface coating. In 1921, the professor of gynaecology at Hamburg University, Von Franqué, assigned his assistant, Hans Hinselmann, to the study of this cervical surface. In particular, he advised him to look at the leukoplakias that, it had already been observed, could be seen with the naked eye, adjacent to many small cervical cancers.. Hinselmann realised that to see these small lesions properly some magnification was needed. As he would later write: the examination of the cervix and vagina with the unaided eye does not meet the demands of scientific appraisal. The use of magnification [is required]. With the help of technicians from the Leitz Company, the predecessor of Leica, manufacturers of cameras and microscopes, he devised the first binocular colposcope. This was a ...

The colposcope itself will not come in contact with your body at any time, nor will it cause any discomfort. During the external exam and the vaginal speculum exam, a diluted vinegar solution will be applied to the skin. With the use of vinegar any abnormal tissue usually appear as white areas on the surface of the cervix, vagina, or vulva. After thorough inspection with the colposcope, your health clinician will decide if a biopsy is necessary.. During a biopsy, a very small sample of tissue, about the size of the tip of a ballpoint pen, will be taken from the white or any other abnormal appearing area. Cells also may be ...

Tomorrow I am going for a loop excision to remove my high grade cell changes (CIN 3) caused by HPV. I had a routine smear test at the end of 2014 that showed signs of HPV and I was sent for a colposcopy and a cervical biopsy as a result. All came back clear but I was put on to annual smears. I went for my first annual smear at the end of last year and there was no HPV but the previous HPV had changed my cells abnormally. I was sent for another colposcopy and cervical biopsy. My biopsy showed no signs of cancer but the changed cells need to be removed and those pesky blighters will be gone tomorrow. Prevention is better than cure and the NHS are so quick to act and so lovely about this. I had my smear test on 4 December 2015 and my abnormal cells removed 25 January 2016. The vaccine wasnt available when I was at school, if it was I would have had it, end of. ReplyDelete ...
A colposcopy is a simple procedure used to look at the cervix, the lower part of the womb at the top of the vagina. Its often done if cervical screening finds abnormal cells in your cervix.. These cells arent harmful and often go away on their own, but sometimes theres a risk they could eventually turn into cervical cancer if not treated.. A colposcopy can confirm whether cells in your cervix are abnormal and determine whether you need treatment to remove them.. This page covers:. When a colposcopy may be needed. What happens. Your result. Treatments to remove abnormal cells. ...
Amazing nurse for colposcopy. We all know how much of embarassement it is to go to spead your legs in front of a stranger, especially if you are doing something called colposcopy and expecting the whole world crashing in few minutes when you get your results. The nurse working with PAP and Colposcopy is the most amazing person I have ever got in touch with in a hospital - very helpful, kind, caring, makes you feel relaxed and removes your stress in two seconds with their personality and approach to patients. They even offered me help as I looked lost before even reaching the part of the clinic i was supposed to get to. Later was very warm and helpful in explaining important things related to why I came.". "Urology. I have just had a cystoscopy this morning. My appointment was at 10.15 a.m and I was seen almost straight away. The staff were lovely and very polite.

I was referred for colposcopy in March after receiving abnormal smear results.The actual results themself dont worry me, as I know it is highly treatable if it even is anything. However, I have been very upset anticipating the procedure itself.
Adherence to screening is assumed to be ,100%. Results are presented as expected colposcopies per 1,000 women, incremental colposcopies, life-years, incremental life-years, and incremental colposcopies per life-year (ICLY) for strategies identified as efficient. Women are assumed to begin screening at age 21 years. For the combined cytology and HPV strategies, cytology-based screening is assumed before age 30 years, with a repeat cytology test for ASC-US results. The strategy of cytology and HPV testing is assumed to begin at age 30 years. ...
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.. Participants undergo routine colposcopy as part of their regular colposcopic evaluation. The digital colposcope is used to take fluorescence and reflectance images of the vagina and cervix. Participants also undergo loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP). The digital colposcopic images are compared with tissue removed during LEEP. Additional surrogate biomarkers under development are also measured using tissue samples removed during LEEP, such as quantitative histopathology measurements, DNA tests for the copy number changes, and tests for the incorporation of viral HPV DNA. ...
Objective To investigate the values of colposcopic cervical biopsy,pathology after loop electrosurgical excision procedure(LEEP) and the combined examinations of colposcopic cervical biopsy and LEEP in the early diagnosis of cervical precancerous lesions and cervical cancer.Methods Five hundred and fifty-four patients with abnormal findings in cervical cytology and/or human papillomavirus(HPV) test or with normal findings in these screening tests while having moderate to severe cervical columnar eversion were subject to colposcopic cervical biopsy and LEEP,and the pathological findings were compared before and after LEEP.Results The total coincidence rate of colposcopic cervical biopsy and pathology after LEEP was 49.82%.In patients diagnosed as cervical intraepithelial neoplasia(CIN) Ⅰ by cervical biopsy,14.36% were diagnosed as CINⅡ/Ⅲ after LEEP.In patients diagnosed as CIN Ⅱ/Ⅲ(including carcinoma in situ) by cervical biopsy,3.89% were diagnosed as invasive carcinoma after LEEP.Kappa
Cervical intraepithelial neoplasia grade 2 or 3 was confirmed by biopsy in 28 women. On the basis of survival analysis, the cumulative incidence of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia at two years was 28 percent among women with a positive test for HPV and 3 percent among those without detectable HPV DNA. The risk was highest among those with HPV type 16 or 18 infection (adjusted relative risk as compared with that in women without HPV infection, 11; 95 percent confidence interval, 4.6 to 26; attributable risk, 52 percent). All 24 cases of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia grade 2 or 3 among HPV-positive women were detected within 24 months after the first positive test for HPV. After adjustment for the presence of HPV infection, the development of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia was also associated with younger age at first intercourse, the presence of serum antibodies to Chlamydia trachomatis, the presence of serum antibodies to cytomegalovirus, and cervical infection with Neisseria ...
INTRODUCTION. The most effective approach to cervical cancer control is early diagnosis and treatment of precursor lesions called cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) and invasive lesions at early stages, with chance of cure in nearly 100%.9. Cervical cancer prevention and control strategies in Brazil have been planned based on distribution of cervical lesions by age and frequency of Pap smears. Declining cervical cancer rates can be attributed to both the "Viva Mulher" Program, which increased detection of CIN, low-grade cervical squamous intraepithelial lesion (LGSIL) and high-grade cervical squamous intraepithelial lesion (HSIL), and the successful treatment referral through the See and Treat program, which was implemented by the Brazilian Ministry of Health in 1997. At the See and Treat program, a woman cytologically and colposcopically diagnosed with LGSIL undergoes loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP).13 LEEP is a relatively safe, low-cost outpatient procedure performed under ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Cervical nitric oxide metabolite levels and clinical variables as predictive factors of high-grade cervical intraepithelial neoplasia. AU - Giannella, Luca. AU - Prandi, Sonia. AU - Giulini, Simone. AU - Mfuta, Kabala. AU - Torrini, Barbara. AU - Boselli, Fausto. PY - 2013/11. Y1 - 2013/11. N2 - Purpose: To create a prediction model of high-grade cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) based on clinical variables and the cervical nitric oxide metabolite (NOx) levels of study participants. Methods: This comparative study included 694 women undergoing colposcopy due to abnormal pap smear results. On the basis of the cervical biopsy results, the women were divided into the ≤CIN 1 or CIN 2-3 group. The two groups were compared in terms of cervical NOx levels and clinical variables. Univariate, multivariate, and receiver-operating characteristic curve analysis were performed. Results: Multivariate analysis showed that CIN 2-3 associated with more than two cervical biopsies [odds ...
Abstract. Background: Atypical squamous cell cannot exclude high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (ASC-H) and low-grade intraepithelial lesion cannot exclude high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (LSIL-H) are ambiguous diagnostic entities for the prediction of high-grade cervical lesion. Objective and reproducible tests for predicting high-grade cervical lesions are needed to reduce unnecessary colposcopic referrals or follow-ups.. Objective: We aimed to identify an adequate set of adjunctive markers to predict cervical intraepithelial neoplasia grade 2+ (CIN2+) in residual liquid-based cytology specimens (LBCS).. Methods: We conducted p16 INK4a/Ki-67 and L1 capsid protein immunostaining and human papillomavirus (HPV) DNA typing on 56 LBCS diagnosed with ASC-H or LSIL-H, all of which were subjected to histologic confirmation or follow-up cytologic examination.. Results: Positivity for p16 INK4a/Ki-67 was associated with a histology of CIN2+ (P=0.047) and CIN3+ (P=0.002). Negativity for ...
Results Overall, 2790 women (6.9%) tested positive for LR-HPV types, with HPV6 and HPV70 being the most frequent types detected, whereas HPV11 was uncommon. The highest prevalence was observed in the youngest age group (≤19 years). The LR-HPV prevalence was 6.3% in women with normal cytology, 33.1% in atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance (ASCUS), 19.6% in low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion and 12.7% in those with high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion. When considering women with LR-HPV alone, the prevalence was 2.0% (normal cytology), 11.3% (ASCUS), 2.6% (low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion) and 0.7% in women with high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion, respectively. A similar pattern was observed in relation to the histological diagnoses with the majority of LR-HPV infections detected in CIN1 lesions (24.7%).. ...
RAS/RAF mutation and defective DNA mismatch repair in endometrial cancers. Persistent and recurrent cervical dysplasia after loop electrosurgical excision procedure
Background: Women infected with human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) and -2 may be at higher risk of developing cervical cancer than uninfected women. We assessed the relationships among human papillomavirus (HPV) types and persistence, HIV-1 and/or HIV-2 infection, and the development of high-grade cervical squamous intraepithelial lesions (HSILs) in a prospective study. Methods: We studied 627 women with and without HIV-1 and/or HIV-2 infection and high-risk HPV infection in Senegal, West Africa, who were assessed every 4 months for HSIL and HPV DNA over a mean follow-up of 2.2 years. Cox regression modeling was used to assess risks associated with development of HSIL. Results: During follow-up, 71 (11%) of 627 women developed HSIL as detected by cytology. HIV-infected women with high-risk HPV types were at greatest risk for development of HSIL. In multivariable modeling, infection with oncogenic HPV types-both persistent (hazard ratio [HR] = 47.1, 95% confidence interval [CI] = 16.3 to ...
