Cervical Conization

Compare 12 clinics

Cervical conization procedure is an important part of cervical cancer prevention. Through cervical conization gynecologists can find the symptoms of cervical cancer or pre-cancerous changes in patient’s cervix.
What is a cervical conization? It is a procedure during which doctors excise a small, cone-shaped part of one’s cervix to look for potentially cancerous changes in it. Its other name is a cone biopsy and it plays an important role in cervical cancer screening guidelines. Additionally, there is a possibility of using cervical conization for cervical cancer, or rather abnormal cervical cells which didn’t have time to develop into proper cervical cancer. If the edges of cone biopsy do not contain cancer cells, it is assumed that all abnormal cervical cells were removed with cervical conization procedure.

Cervical Conization Candidates

Candidates for cervical conization procedure are women whose PAP test indicated changes in the cervix but such changes were invisible in colposcopy.
Colposcopy is another gynecological procedure used to look for abnormal cervical cells (cervical dysplasia). In colposcopy doctors have a view of cervix through a colposcope – a medical device with a magnifying glass. If it is not effective in looking for abnormal cervical cells, gynecologists often decide for cervical conization to conduct a proper diagnosis of cancer.

Am I Suitable for Cervical Conization?

It may be not necessary to perform cervical conization procedure if colposcopy has shown the development of cervical cancer. However, some doctors will still decide for a cone biopsy in order to get to know exactly what type of cervical cancer they are dealing with.
Additionally, pregnant women are discouraged from having a cervical conization.

Preparing for Cervical Conization

No special preparation is necessary for cervical conization procedure, especially, that doctors use local anaesthesia to perform conization for cervical cancer.

How is Cervical Conization Performed?

There are few tools which are available for doctors performing cervical conisation. These are:
• Scalpel
• CO2 laser
• LEEP (or loop electrosurgical excision procedure).
All those tools may cause some amounts of pain and discomfort, thus cervical conization is usually performed with local anaesthesia.

Cervical Conization Recovery

Cervical conization procedure does not require a long recovery period. After one or two days at home, women are able to come back to work. Biopsy of cervix is not a very invasive surgery so it does not cause a significant damage to the cervix or other organs. Some bleeding is expected for the first couple of days after cervical conization procedure but if it is excessive it is better to call a doctor. Women are advised to use pads instead of tampons and refrain from douching for the period of few weeks after cervical conization.

Cervical Conization Risks and Complications

Although it is a minimally invasive, outpatient procedure, there are some cervical conization risks, including excessive bleeding. Another cervical conization risks include cervical stenosis (narrowing) and so-called cervical incompetence, when cervix is not able to stay closed during pregnancy, requiring a cervical cerclage.

Cervical Conization Side Effects

Among cervical conization side effects are limited bleeding and vaginal discharge. However, they are expected to fade within a week from a cervical conization procedure.
