After an abnormal Pap-smear a colposcopy may be recommended. In our office a colposcopy with our new photo-video-colposcope is possible, so that we can determine where the abnormal cells are growing and the degree of abnormality. A sample of cells (biopsy) may be taken to indicate cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN I, CIN II, CIN III). Often with mild dysplasia (CIN I) no treatment is needed and a follow-up is recommended. For severe dysplasia (CIN II and CIN III) a surgery or laser therapy to remove the abnormal cells is recommended.
