An abnormal Pap test can indicate many things. Some of the more common causes of an abnormal pap smear include infections, inflammation, and precancerous lesions. In order to determine whether you are at risk for progressing to cervical cancer, we will evaluate the results and determine if further testing is necessary if your test results are abnormal.
One of the most common follow-up treatments after an abnormal Pap smear is a colposcopy. This is a simple 10 to 15 minute procedure that is painless and performed in our office.
The benefits of a colposcopy test include:
The procedure allows your doctor to examine suspicious areas of the cervix, as well as any vascular changes. If possible, your doctor will take a tissue sample from the abnormal area to send it for further evaluation. Additional procedures might be performed during the colposcopy.
LEEP is short for Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure and is sometimes performed during a colposcopy. It is one of several procedures your doctor has available to help treat abnormal cervical cells.
During LEEP, a thin wire loop electrode is attached to an electrosurgical generator, which transmits a painless electrical current to cut abnormal cervical tissue. The abnormal cells rapidly heat and burst, separating the tissue as the loop wire moves through the cervix. The procedure takes about 20 to 30 minutes.
The benefits of LEEP include:
