How is cervical cancer diagnosed?



If you have had a cervical screening (smear) test and abnormal cells have been found, you will be referred for a colposcopy to take a further look at your cervix.


During a colposcopy a speculum is inserted into your vagina to examine your cervix. A microscope is then used to look at your cervix in greater detail. A biopsy may be taken from your cervix for testing.


The procedure takes around half an hour and isn't painful.


Your consultant gynaecologist will discuss your results with you. If you are told you have cervical cancer, further tests will usually be required to determine the size and spread of the cancer, such as blood tests, MRI scans, CT scans and internal examinations.


Your treatment plan will be individualised to you and will depend on how big the cancer is and if it has spread.
