Introduction
Colposcopy is an examination of a woman’s vagina and cervix using a colposcope – a tubular instrument with a light source and lenses that magnify up to 25 times. Using a colposcope, a doctor can examine the cervix and vagina closely for cancer and for abnormal areas that might soon become cancer. Colposcopy takes about 15 minutes and requires no anesthesia.
