Your doctor can recommend one or many of the following diagnostic tests based on the symptoms experienced by you and part of the body affected.
A pelvic exam typically consists of a doctor's visual and physical evaluation of a woman's reproductive organs like vagina, cervix, fallopian tubes, vulva, ovaries, and uterus.
This test involves collecting and examining the cells from the cervix to screen for cervical cancer. It is generally done in conjunction with a pelvic examination.
A pelvic ultrasound is a scan which uses sound waves to look at the organs inside the female pelvis consisting of uterus, cervix, vagina, fallopian tubes and ovaries.
Mammogram screens for breast cancer. During this procedure, low dose X-rays are used to produce pictures of the breast which are then examined for signs of cancer.
It is a procedure to remove a sample of tissue or cells from the body for examining it closely. Though biopsies can help diagnose many problems, it is mostly done to detect cancers.
A colposcopy is a way to identify cancerous cells in the cervix, vagina, or vulva by taking a closer look at them. For performing this, the doctor uses a special magnifying device called Colposcope to get an enlarged view of the cervix.
Cystoscopy, otherwise called cystourethroscopy, is a procedure that allows the physician to check for the health of the urinary tract including the bladder and urethra, in detail.
Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive surgical diagnostic procedure that uses a thin tube with a video camera attached to its one end to examine the organs in the abdomen and pelvic area of the women.
Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure (LEEP)
LEEP is done to diagnose or treat abnormal cells or tissues in the cervix or vagina found during a Pelvic exam or PAP test. This procedure involves the usage of a wire loop heated by an electric current to cut away a thin layer of abnormal tissue.
This is a minimally invasive procedure that allows the doctor to examine the uterus through a scope. If anything abnormal is found, a sample of it can be taken for further testing.
