can transvaginal ultrasound detect cancers in the endocervix?

Biopsy: Transvaginal ultrasound is not designed to detect endocervical cancer. An early lesion may not produce enough structural change to be picked up ultrasound. If there is any reason to suspect endocervical cancer, curettings, or biopsy of the canal should be tested by a pathologist. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex.
