Cervical Biopsy – OB/GYN Physicians
The cervix is the lower part of the uterus that forms a canal which opens into the vagina and leads to outside the body. The tissue that’s removed is then closely examined under a microscope.
A cervical biopsy is normally performed during a colposcopy procedure or Pap Smear biopsy procedure.
What is a cervical biopsy?
A cervical biopsy is a procedure that is performed to remove tissue from the cervix to test for abnormal cells or precancerous conditions.
Cervical biopsy or punch biopsy
The amount of tissue your doctor removes is dependent on the type of GYN biopsy being done. A simple cervical biopsy procedure, also known as a punch biopsy, removes a small piece of tissue from the surface of the cervix, where as an endocervical biopsy (endocervical curettage) removes tissue from high in the cervical canal and requires scraping with a sharp instrument.
