For women with irregular pap smears, cold knife cone biopsy is a procedure to diagnose or treat cervical cancer. The cervix is located at the lower part of the uterus and opens up into the vagina. When abnormal cells are detected during a Pap smear, cold knife cone biopsy may be recommended to diagnose the condition or remove cancerous cells.

Also called conization, cold knife cone biopsy can save lives by detecting cervical cancer in the earliest stages. For some patients, the procedure may be used as a treatment to remove all the cancerous cells.

If you suspect you suffer from cervical cancer, have had an irregular Pap smear and inconclusive colposcopy, cold knife cone biopsy may diagnose your condition. Early detection is important to improve the success of cancer treatments. Request a screening online today.
