Cone biopsy : A cone biopsy of the cervix is a larger biopsy that both treats most lesions and checks for the presence of an invasive cancer.

Big biopsy of cervix: While the patient is under anesthesia (asleep) the doctor cuts out a small (outside) cone shaped portion of the cervix that has abnormal/ pre cancerous or cancerous skin and deeper tissue . It can treat cervical dysplasia ( pre cancer of the cervix) or diagnose cervical cancer. It is rarely enough to treat cervical cancer.
