Cold Knife Cone Biopsy
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.

HPV infection: The condition for which you are having a cone biopsy done is called "cervical dysplasia". It is caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV). It is sexually transmitted.

You probably want to ask your doctor to do anal swabs and test for HPV. ...Read more

Had cold knife cone biopsy for cervical carcinoma in situ 4 months ago. Clear margins. Now I am having heavy periods. Concerned?

Healing: A cone biopsy is a huge procedure; the specimen can be the size of my relatively small nose and it's not surprising that the blood vessels that grow into the new scar tissue are fragile and leak over the following weeks. Be thankful -- essentially every conization biopsy with a favorable pathology report afterwards represents the cure of a cancer that would otherwise have been deadly. COngrats. ...Read more
Oral sex is not going to interfere with the healing of the cervix. You may return the favor, if you wish.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. 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. ...Read more

Great: With cryosurgery, the affected area is frozen, which destroys the tissue. How deep this goes depends on the length of the freeze, although there is a limit to that due to the warming effect of the circulation. A cone biopsy, now done by loop excision, removes the affected tissue in pieces. It has an advantage in that the margins can be examined by the pathologist. ...Read more
