A biopsy of the cervix during erosion
A biopsy in most cases is a kind of sampling tissue for histological studies. Erosion is characterized by lesions of the neck, it is a kind of sore on its surface that does not heal. There are several kinds of erosion, but conducting a biopsy in this disease is not always appropriate. Therefore, this procedure requires serious indications.
During a biopsy a piece of tissue is taken from the affected area in a certain way.
There are several methods of biopsy:
Aimed biopsy method:
In this method the toissue sampling is made using a thin needle under the control of a colposcope.
Loop biopsy method:
The loop method is characterized by the imposition of the wire loop on the affected area through which electric current is passed, which causes necrosis of the cells. This method is used not only as a diagnostic, but as a treatment for erosion as well.
Wedge biopsy method:
The most traumatic way is a wedge biopsy. In this procedure, a scalpel is used for excising tissue at a depth of not less than 2-3 mm. The cut is performed in a wedge shape, however, this method is called wedge.
It must be remembered that all these methods are rather painful and, if necessary, anesthesia is possible. These investigations are carried out exclusively in the first phase of the menstrual period, and only if there are no genital infections. A biopsy should be performed appropriately with embellishment of the affected area with a solution of iodine; in this case the diseased cells are very well rendered.
What is a biopsy?
A biopsy is needed to confirm or not the fact of cancers. This is very important for early diagnosis of cervical cancer. After conducting a study women must have two-week sexual and physical rest. There is the possibility of bleeding. And also the pain in the groin area is not excluded. But if you have a strong discharge with unpleasant smell and unusual color, you should immediately visit a specialist in order to avoid complications.
A biopsy is carried out as planned in the women’s health center in the community. If there are no contraindications or pathologies that this procedure does not usually cause complications. We must not forget that the biopsy is appointed not to all women with erosion, but only to those whose cytological examination of cells seems suspicious.
