Diagnosis of Cervical Cancer

If cervical cancer is suspected through a positive HPV DNA test, pap smear test, or other screening tests, your doctor may examine your cervix thoroughly using the following diagnosis procedures:

  • Colposcopy: Uses a sharp tool to take a small sample of tissue from the cervix
  • Endocervical curettage: Uses a curet or brush to scrape tissue samples from the cervix
  • Electrical wire loop: Uses a thin electrified wire to collect tissue samples, this procedure requires local anesthesia
  • Cone biopsy: Uses tools to sample deeper layers of cervical cells, for further testing, this procedure requires general anesthesia

Staging of Cervical Cancer

If cervical cancer is determined, tests will be required to determine the stage of cancer. The stages of cancer can be determined using the following examinations and scans:

  • Imaging tests (X-ray, CT, MRI, PET)
