When would I need a colposcopy?

A Pap test indicates if the cells from your cervix show any abnormalities. If the results of a Pap test are abnormal, Dr. Peña may recommend a colposcopy, so he can more closely examine your cervix and vagina for any signs of disease.

A colposcopy is a painless procedure that Dr. Peña performs in the office. It takes just about 15 minutes and allows him to view your cervix through a microscope. A colposcopy can help him accurately diagnose such abnormalities as:

  • Precancerous changes in the vulva or vaginal tissue
  • Precancerous changes to the cervix tissue
  • Genital warts
  • Cervicitis (inflammation of your cervix)

Dr. Peña can also perform a biopsy using the colposcope to further test abnormal cells.
