LEEP ?'S: Leep procedures usually remove the "abnormal cells" which the LEEP procedure is performed to remove, but persistent HPV infection may cause more abnormal cells to occur after the LEEP procedure. Colposcopy can detect the location of abnormal cells on the remaining cervix, and other treatments (TCA treatment or cryo procedures) may be alternative treatments.
