A member asked:

Can a dr tell during a colposcopy if the biopsy they take of the cervix is bad? does cancer have a certain feature they can see? what about infection

Sometimes yes,: sometimes no. Most biopsies they cannot tell,but if there's a large growth,its appearance may be telltale for cancer.
