Cervix Biopsy Side Effects
Biopsy is tissue removed by needle or cutting to remove part of a body part. It is usually a small amount of material that is processed by a pathologist.

The purpose is to tell what the problem is (diagnosis). ...Read more

Cervical lesion: If a pap smear comes back abnormal, looking at the cervix with a microscope and taking a biopsy of the abnormal area is often done to rule out cancer or precancer, also called dysplasia. The office procedure is called a colposcopy. Some abnormalities can be seen with the naked eye as well. These would also be biopsied and sent to pathology for the same reasons.
Sample of the cervix: A cervical biopsy is a tiny piece of your cervix to determine the presence or absence of cervical disease/pathology. This will not deform your cervix.
Yes, it can.: If you had a cervical biopsy, the area where the biopsy was taken has to heal. Just as with any cut, if you disturb the scab, it bleeds.
How dangerous is it that a surgical sponge was accidently left in my vagina during a cervix biopsy?

Results benign?: I am assuming the d and c and biopsy results are benign. If so there are lots of options for peri menopausal bleeding you can discuss with the doctor. Lysteda is a nonhormone medication. Some benefit from birth control pills, patch or nuvaring. Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud can stop periods in some cases. Endometrial ablations are great options for peri menopausal bleeding. Some will just need a hysterectomy.See 1 more doctor answer
I have large fibroid 5mnth pregnant look like. Gyn took pap smear and cervix biopsy, what was the purpose of the samples taken out of from inside.?
Not related: The pap smear and cervical biopsy would not be related to the fibroid. A pap smear is done to detect precancerous cells on the cervix and prevent cervical cancer. A cervical biopsy is done because the pap smear was abnormal or because the doctor saw an abnormality there during the exam. Fibroids are very common benign uterine tumors.
Does an epinepherine endometrial adrenaline injection side effects last? And for how long? I had a biopsy today and they injected me inside my cervix.
Not likely: It sounds like they injected some Lidocaine with Epinephrine in your cervix today for a biopsy/colposcopy? Those medications they infected have a super short 1/2 life, meaning they don't stay in your system for very long at all. Definitely all gone by the time you wrote this question. No lasting side effects. Hope biopsy comes back normal!See 1 more doctor answer
What are the side effects of duodenum biopsies? Will the duodenum heal? Dr took multiple samples measuring a total of 2.5x0.3x0.2cm. Why so much?
3 swollen node's (neck) for 5 years. Test's all OK. Dr says too small to biopsy, not willing to remove 1cm nodes. No other side effects. Worrying?
Stop worrying: Leave them alone. They're your friends. They're protecting you from microbes you've met in the past. Every young adult has palpable lymph nodes in the neck. Malignant nodes are obviously abnormal -- either stony-hard, or fixed to stuff, or growing preposterously. Be thankful for good health and stop reading internet scare stuff.See 1 more doctor answer
I am about to have a partial hysterectomy (ovaries and cervix stay) what are the sexual side effects?
Varies: Keeping the ovaries is probably a good idea in order to preserve the normal libido. Keeping the cervix is associated with an increased risk for bleeding, cancer, painful intercourse, vaginal infections, and the need for additional surgery (to remove the cervix later). There are very few good reasons to leave the cervix - and many good reasons to remove it with the uterus.See 2 more doctor answers

Not very painful: It's VERY important to get a colposcopy if your pap is abnormal. A colposcopy is a speculum exam where special stains and magnifying lenses are used to look for pre-cancers on your cervix.

Post surgery: I have to say that should be something that should have been discussed with the Dr performing the biopsy. I would discuss this with that Dr or the Dr who referred you for the biopsy. I am sure location, size and manner in which the sample was removed all play a role in this situation, as well as protected or unprotected.
