Preventive Oncology and Colposcopy Center

Gynecologic cancer confers a large burden among women and Several evidence-based interventions are available to reduce the incidence, morbidity, and mortality from these cancers. Five cancers account for the vast majority of gynecologic cancer cases: cervical, ovarian, uterine, vaginal, and vulvar. Nearly all cervical and 40%–70% of vaginal and vulvar cancers are associated with the human papillomavirus (HPV). The Pap test alone or in combination with HPV testing prevents and detects cervical cancer at early stages. Any abnormality in these is further evaluated with colposcopy. Colposcopy center Colposcopy is a procedure to closely examine the cervix, vagina, and vulva for signs of disease. For this, a special instrument called a colposcope is used. If any suspicious area is found during colposcopy examination, a sample of tissue is taken for laboratory testing ( Biopsy). Colposcopy can be used to diagnose-
  • Genital warts
  • inflammation of the cervix (cervicitis)
  • precancerous changes in the cervix
  • precancerous changes in the vagina
  • precancerous changes in the vulva
