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 Global Colposcopy Market Research Report 2017 is a professional and in-depth ...
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 ...

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
If you have received an abnormal cervical screening result or your practice nurse has visually noticed changes in your cervix, you may be invited to attend a colposcopy clinic.. Colposcopy is simply a more detailed look at the cervix. Instead of looking at the cervix with the naked eye, the person performing the colpscopy will use a special microscope to see the changes at high magnification with good lighting. Dont worry about the sound of this! The microscope stays outside of your body. All that goes inside is the speculum, which is the instrument your GP or practice nurse used to see your cervix when taking your cervical screening. Some clinics may be equipped with video equipment so that you can watch the examination if you wish. The examination may take a little longer than a standard cervical screening test but the colposcopist (a doctor or nurse specifically trained to undertake colposcopy) performing the colposcopy will talk to you as you during the examination and tell you what is ...

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 ...
Hello,. I felt I should write something here on this forum regarding my first Colposcopy. There never seems to be a follow up when somebody has had a colposcopy and I would like to share my experience with you.. It all started when I had my very first abnormal smear result. My previous 2 smear tests had been normal. My first reaction was panic! I started to google cervical cancer and was left in a state of anxiety. I was convinced that this was it for me.. It didnt help that my abnormal smear was showing high grade dyskaryosis, the words high grade were very upsetting.. After 2 weeks of waiting and worrying my colposcopy appointement had arrived. I was a bag of nerves whilst in the waiting room. All I could think is this is really going to hurt and scared that the Dr was going to tell me I had the big C!. When my name was called I thought this is it, my fate will be decided now. The Dr sat down with me and the first thing he said was, you do not have cancer. In my mind I was thinking, you ...

In 1113 women referred to our colposcopy unit for abnormal cytology, colposcopic assessment was followed by histologic examination for final diagnosis and by presence of HPV DNA and E6/E7 mRNA transcripts. A total of 134 CIN 2+ cases were identified. Out of the 134 women with CIN 2+ cervical lesions, 115 cases (85.8%) tested positive by PCR to HR HPV DNA types, and 19 (14.2%) were HR HPV DNA negative. 68 cases (50.7%) were ...
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.. Using a special magnifying device known as a colposcope, your doctor will take an extensive look at your cervix, vulva and vagina. A vinegar solution may be applied to the vagina and cervix to make any abnormal areas more noticeable. If questionable areas are noticed, a biopsy may be taken for further testing. A colposcopy typically takes 10 to 20 minutes. Please visit this website for more information.. ...

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 ...
Expertise in performing satisfactory, safe, and accurate colposcopic examinations requires high competence in the technical, interpretive, and cognitive aspects, and the capability to integrate colposcopic findings into management practice. The competencies needed are manifold and include: basic theoretical knowledge of the instrumentation, the anatomy and pathophysiology of the cervix, the natural history and manifestations of transient and persistent HPV infections, the natural history of cervical neoplasia, the cytological and histopathological aspects of metaplasia, dysplasia, and cancer, and colposcopic indications and procedures; the ability to recognize the normal and abnormal cervix by visualization and interpretation of the colposcopic appearances of normal, inflammatory, and neoplastic conditions; skills in directing biopsies and managing colposcopic abnormalities; treatment of CIN and adenocarcinoma in situ under colposcopic control; skills in avoiding and controlling bleeding and ...
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 number of treatments and investigations are performed at Dr Kennedys consulting rooms as outpatient procedures. Some of these are listed below.. Colposcopy. Colposcopy is a procedure to carry out a magnified examination of your cervix, vagina and vulva for signs of disease. During colposcopy, a special instrument called a colposcope is used. Your GP may recommend colposcopy if your Pap test has shown abnormal results. If an unusual area of cells is detected during colposcopy, a sample of tissue can be sometimes be collected for laboratory testing (biopsy).. LLETZ. A LLETZ procedures is performed to removed precancerous abnormalities of the cervix that have been detected with a colposcopy. The procedure can performed under a local or a general anaesthetic. LLETZs performed under a local anaesthetic can be performed in Dr Kennedys rooms, thereby avoiding a full general anaesthetic. The cervix is examined using a colposcope. A fine wire loop charged with electricity is used to shave away the ...
PURPOSE To compare the pregnancy outcomes between women who were treated with cold-coagulation versus large loop excision of the transformation zone (LLETZ) for cervical intraepithelial neoplasia. METHODS This was a retrospective cohort study of women who had a single cervical treatment between 2010 and 2011. We identified those women who had a singleton pregnancy subsequent to their cervical treatment until September 2017. Women with previous cervical treatment, previous miscarriage or preterm delivery were excluded. RESULTSWe identified 86 women with a pregnancy after LLETZ treatment and 75 women after cold coagulation. Those who had LLETZ when compared to cold coagulation miscarried more often in the first trimester (33.7 vs 17.3%; p = 0.01) than in the second trimester. In women with LLETZ this effect of increased early miscarriage was shown to be prolonged and to persist up to 17 months after excision. Women with LLETZ when compared to cold coagulation had higher spontaneous preterm birth ...
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 ...

Yes, a colposcopy exam can be used to detect vaginal, vulvar and cervical cancer. DYSIS colposcopy exam can provide much accurate results.
A colposcopy is a tool used to provide a magnified view of the cervix. It is a camera with two eyepieces and a bright light mounted on a stand. When lab results show abnormal cells on the cervix, the doctor will usually suggest a colposcopy procedure in addition to a biopsy. These scans allow the doctor to check for any visually abnormal cells on and around the cervix.. ...
There are differences across Europe with differing screening programmes as well as colposcopy is part of training for all obstetricians and gynaecologists (as recommended by EBCOG) or recommended just for those that wish to do colposcopy. TTT sessions are crucial to lead and review training programmes. Assessments must have quality assistance. Of course, future trainees will progress to become trainers of the future. The EFC has a role in supporting training across Europe.. A question was asked whether all gynaecologists should be colposcopists? Prof Cruickshank said that each country has a different environment to deal with but Prof Petry the numbers of CIN3 will be small per colposcopist. Colposcopists must be adequately trained.. ...

A 36-year-old woman presented for follow-up of a persistently abnormal Papanicolaou (Pap) test. She is a smoker and has had multiple new sexual partners in the last few years. Although she has had several abnormal Pap tests in the past, she states she has never needed treatment. She was found to have a dense acetowhite (AW) lesion on colposcopy that was biopsied (Figure 90-1). The pathology returned cervical intraepithelial neoplasia grade 3 (CIN 3) and the patient was treated with loop electrosurgery. She had negative margins on the loop electrosurgical excision procedure specimen and remained recurrence-free at 3 years. ...
Background: The ALTS (atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance [ASCUS] and low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion [LSIL] Triage Study) suggests that, for women diagnosed with ASCUS, human papillomavirus (HPV) DNA testing followed by referral to colposcopy of only those women with oncogenic HPV (i.e., HPV DNA testing) is as effective at detecting cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) 3 or cancer (CIN3+) as referring all women with ASCUS for immediate colposcopy. We conducted a cost-effectiveness analysis of the ALTS trial to determine whether HPV DNA testing is a cost-effective alternative to immediate colposcopy or conservative management with up to three cytology examinations. Methods: Data from the ALTS trial were used in conjunction with medical care costs in a short-term decision model. The model compared the incremental costs per case of CIN3+ detected as measured by the incremental cost-effectiveness ratio (ICER) for the following management strategies for women with ...

AIM: To determine the frequency of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) following large loop excision of the transformation zone of the cervix (LLETZ) according to grade and completeness of excision of CIN. METHODS: A retrospective study of 669 patients who had LLETZ biopsies showing CIN 1, 2, or 3. The patients were subdivided according to the grade and completeness of excision of CIN. The follow up period was 1.5 to 3.5 years. Risk of persistent/recurrent CIN was assessed by the frequency of histological diagnosis of CIN during the follow up period. RESULTS: Frequency of persistent/recurrent CIN increased with the grade of CIN reported: 6.7% of patients with CIN 1, 13.4% with CIN 2, and 21.7% with CIN 3 developed persistence or recurrence. The frequency of CIN persistence/recurrence was significantly lower where LLETZ showed complete excision of CIN (8.4%) than where it was incomplete (31.3%) (p , 0.0001) or equivocal (27.8%) (p , 0.0001). CONCLUSIONS: Patients with incomplete or equivocal ...

The first HPV vaccines licensed targeted two HPV types responsible for most cervical cancers. A 9-valent vaccine (9vHPV), targeting 5 additional types, was introduced in 2016 and is currently the only HPV vaccine available in the United States. Previous studies demonstrated high rates of HPV infection in Alaska Native (AN) women. We sought to measure prevalence of high risk HPV types in AN women undergoing colposcopy and to determine those preventable by vaccination. For this cross-sectional study, we recruited women who were undergoing colposcopy for clinical indications at Alaska Native Medical Center to obtain cervical brush biopsy samples. Specimens were shipped to Atlanta, Georgia for DNA extraction, HPV detection, and typing using L1 PCR with type-specific hybridization to detect 37 HPV types. Four hundred eighty eight specimens from 489 women were tested. At least one HPV type was found in 458 (94%) specimens. Of 458 participants who were HPV positive, 332 (72%) had two or more types. At least

Cervical cancer is the fourth most common cancer in women, with more than half a million new cases worldwide each year. In the majority of cervical cancers a persistent infection with high-risk (hr) Human papillomavirus (HPV) types has been proven to be the causative agent. Prevention of cervical cancer can be improved by studying the detection of cervical precancer by colposcopy and by understanding the natural history of different HPV genotypes. This thesis addresses different approaches to improve colposcopic accuracy. Furthermore, the biology of different hrHPV genotypes is studied in premalignant lesions. Despite the important role of colposcopy in detecting high-grade disease, sensitivity is relatively low. We studied whether colposcopic accuracy can be improved by hrHPV genotyping and by studying colposcopic characteristics systematically. In a population following European screening practice, HPV16 related lesions were detected at younger age and showed similar colposcopic impression as non-16
In August I came back from a break at Mr Ks house and a family visit to a load of mail as usual. It was late but I hate leaving my mail so went about opening it all. There were 2 white envelopes I didnt recognise. I opened the first one up and saw it was the results of my most recent smear test. I was expecting the same sentence as last time and a reminder that my next smear would be due in 3 years as usual. I wasnt expecting to see that abnormal cells had been found and that I had the HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) The second letter was my date for a colposcopy at my local hospital. I panicked. I was terrified. Like a lot of women, all logic and rational thinking went out the window and I began to get upset. I called Mr K, who stayed on the phone with me for a fair while before I said I was tired. I had a shower, I prayed and then I went on line. I read the NHS website and then found Jos Trust, a charity set up to help women who are diagnosed with cervical cancer. They also spread awareness of ...
Cervical cancer is a major health issue worldwide, with 500 000 new cases each year (Parkin et al., 2001). Women who die of cervical cancer lose on average 26 years of life, which is considerably greater than the average years of life lost to breast cancer (18.9 years; Horner et al., 2009). Cervical cancer is one of the few cancers that are preventable through screening, and population-based screening for cervical cancer can reduce incidence and mortality rates of cervical cancer by 80% (Antilla et al., 2004). Cytological screening by smear test followed by diagnostic colposcopy allows for early detection of pre-cancerous lesions and treatment, which may stop the progression from cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) to invasive cervical cancer.. ...
Evidence-based recommendations on DYSIS colposcope with DYSISmap and ZedScan I for assessing suspected cervical abnormalities in people having colposcopy
Cervical cancer remains one of the leading causes of death among women in developing countries. Without resources to support Pap smear cytology and colposcopy, cost-effective approaches which enable single-visit see-and-treat protocols offer the potential to reduce morbidity and mortality due to this preventable disease. We carried out a pilot clinical study in Shanxi province, China, to evaluate a low-cost, high-resolution microendoscope (HRME) imaging system which enables evaluation of epithelial cell morphology in vivo. HRME images were obtained at discrete sites on the cervix in 174 women, in addition to visual inspection with acetic acid (VIA), and colposcopic examination. Out of 69 sites appearing abnormal on colposcopy, only 12 showed high-grade disease (CIN2+) on pathology. Quantification of the nuclear-to-cytoplasm ratio by HRME enabled an ad hoc threshold to be defined, which correctly classified all 12 sites as abnormal, whilst classifying 38 of the remaining 57 pathology normal ...
Correct: (B) Obtaining her past medical records regarding previous pap smear and repeating pap smear in 6 months and 12 months. Explanation: The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) guidelines for management of HPV-positive LSIL cytology in adolescents, the second-most common abnormal cytology, are to repeat cervical cytology at 6 months and 12 months. Adolescents have been shown to clear HPV and have low cancer rates. However, colposcopy may also be a reasonable choice if there is a risk of loss to follow-up. Low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions carry a risk CIN 2-3+ at initial colposcopy of 15-30%. Routine screening may resume after 2 consecutive negative cytology results or 1 negative HPV. The most common result is atypical squamous cells (ACS). Aggressive investigation is not recommended since the diagnosis is often not reproducible and carries a very low risk for cancer (0.1-0.2%) This case requires the physician to determine whether this patient will be lost to ...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the effect of introducing testing for human papillomavirus combined with liquid based cytology in women with low grade cytological abnormalities. DESIGN: Observational before and after study. SETTING: Three cervical screening laboratories, England. PARTICIPANTS: 5654 women aged 20-64 with low grade cytological abnormalities found at routine cervical screening in a pilot; 5254 similar women in the period before the pilot. INTERVENTIONS: Human papillomavirus testing combined with liquid based cytology in the management of women with borderline or mildly dyskaryotic cervical smear results compared with conventional smear tests, with immediate referral to colposcopy of women positive for human papillomavirus. RESULTS: 57.9% (3187/5506) of women tested in the pilot were positive for human papillomavirus. The rate of repeat smears fell by 74%, but the rate of referral to colposcopy for low grade cytological abnormalities more than doubled. The estimated negative predictive value ...
Results from smear tests can be difficult to interpret. There is a whole spectrum, from completely normal to definitely malignant. The exact risk consequent on each grade is not clear. When recommending further action, referral of all grades of abnormality would lead to considerable overinvestigation and overdiagnosis. A careful balance thus has to be reached, taking into account the benefits and costs both to women and to the health service. Inevitably opinions will differ on how such a balance is arrived at.. The management of mild dyskaryosis presents precisely such a dilemma. Although the consensus is that a single mildly dyskaryotic smear should be managed by a repeat smear test at six months, with referral for colposcopy only if the abnormality persists, there are those who believe that women with such smears should be referred immediately for colposcopy. This is because, although the majority of such smears will revert to normal or persist as mildly dyskaryotic, a small proportion may ...
Background: Worldwide, cervical cancer comprises 12% of all cancers in women and 2,31,000 women die of cervical cancer every year, over 80% of whom live in developing countries.

Your doctor may decide if you need a second Pap test in six months, an HPV test, or a colposcopy (cole-POSS-cuh-pee). Follow your doctors advice so that any problems are found early.. The HPV test checks for some types of the virus that cause cervical dysplasia or cancer. If your test is negative, youre not at risk for cancer.. Colposcopy is another way to check your cervix.
