What Is a Colposcopy?

Getting a detailed and clear view of an area of the body is incredibly important when trying to diagnose an issue in that area. Without a clear picture of the area being observed, our doctors will not be able to make an accurate diagnosis of the issue.

Areas like the cervix, vagina, and vulva can be difficult to examine without the proper equipment. At Progressive Care for Women, we are able to closely inspect these areas by performing a colposcopy.

A colposcope is a diagnostic device that is equipped with a variable fixed-power lens that allows the doctor to zoom in on key areas to gain a clearer and more detailed view. A mild acetic acid is also applied to the area being examined, which will help to enhance the visibility of any abnormal tissue.

Contact Progressive Care for Women if you are experiencing any concerning issues with your cervix, vagina, and vulva. We will make an accurate diagnosis of the issue so we can help you get the care you need as soon as possible.
