Colposcopy is useful for diagnosing and treating any abnormality of the uterine cervix and external reproductive organs in women. It can correctly differentiate between cancer, pre-cancer, or cervical intra-epithelial neoplasia(CIN), or a simple ulcer or erosion. It can also differentiate between different infections of the female genitalia.
The Director of our Hospital, Dr. Asha Jain has an experience of 22 years in Obstetrics and Gynecology. She is the pioneer of Colposcopy in Raipur, as well as in Chhattisgarh. She started Preventive Oncology services 14 years back. Colposcopy can correctly diagnose cervical cancer, or the presence of vaginal cancer,how far cancer is spread in vagina, vulval cancer, and their spread. It can differentiate various causes of white discharge or leucorrhoea . All these conditions except cancer can also be completely treated by Colposcopy assisted therapeutic methods at the same sitting .
The whole procedure does not take more than 15 minutes, and usually no hospitalization is required. As it is not a major surgery, no special post-operative care is required. At our centre, we follow “See and Treat” approach. There is no need for the patient to taking a leave from job except for the day of hospital visit. Cure rates are as high as 90%.
Every women above 30 years of age or who has been engaged in sexual activity for more than 5 years irrespective of marital status should have an HPV-HC2 test and Liquid based Cytology (LBC) and Colposcopy when indicated to rule out getting cancer in the next few years. Cervical cancer kills one woman every 8 minutes in India and 27% of all cervical cancer deaths occur in India according to Globocan. That means every 4th woman dying of cervical cancer is an Indian. The tragedy is that cervical cancer is completely preventible as per World Health Organization. Primary prevention is by vaccinating adolescent girls against HPV and secondary prevention is by screening and treatment of any pre-cancer or CIN found during screening.
Colposcopy prevents cervical cancer by accurately screening for pre-cancerous lesions, also termed dysplasia or CIN and also treating them. Thus it is an effective, and also cost effective tool in the prevention of cervical cancer.
