Cervical conization is a crucial technique for the prevention of cervical cancer. By performing cervical conization, gynecologists are able to discover the cervical cancer symptoms and the changes which occur before cancer in patient’s cervix. During the cervical conization operation, surgeons remove a small cone-shaped piece from the cervix so as to search for possible cancerous changes. Cervical conization is also called cone biopsy, and it has a crucial role in screening cervical cancer. Also, cervical conization can be used for cervical cancer in cases of abnormal cervical cells, which could not progress into 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.
Female patients whose PAP test indicated that there are changes in the patient’s cervix, and if these changes could not be detected in colposcopy, these patients can be the candidates for cervical conization. Colposcopy is also a gynecological technique performed for searching the abnormal cervical cells (cervical dysplasia). While performing colposcopy, surgeons use a colposcope, which is a medical tool with a magnifying glass. With the use of colposcope, doctors are able to see the cervix. When this method is not effective enough, doctors choose to perform cervical conization so as to identify cancer cells.
