Tissue?: Colposcopy is the gold standard diagnostic tool for diagnosing cervical intraepithelial neoplasia following abnormal cytology (abnormal pap). Simple language The GYN uses different solutions and light to examine the all areas of the cervix to check for abnormal tissue. Biopsies of cells are taken. Your sx could be normal s/e of the procedure. Contact the Gyn who performed the procedure to review.
