Medical Evaluation

When a woman experiences concerning symptoms, a pelvic exam, including a rectogvaginal exam, and a general physical should be performed.  If the exam is abnormal, the woman might be recommended to undergo an HPV test, colposcopy and a biopsy, depending upon the results of the colpscopy.

If cervical cancer is suspected or diagnosed, it is important to seek care first from a gynecologic oncologist.
