Cone Biopsy And Pregnancy
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. Most of the time it is stained and looked at through a microscope to arrive at a diagnosis. Special processes are done for some tissues or problems. The purpose is to tell what the problem is (diagnosis). ...Read more

Hello I just had a loop cone biopsy March. I had a normal pap March 29. I'm currently 8weeks pregnant is this pregnancy at high risk.?

2 weeks ago today I had a cone biopsy and endometrial biopsy's. I'm still bleeding is this normal?
Depends: First there are three types of conization (laser, cold knife, and LEEP). All may be associated with some light bleeding, though it should get better with time. I usually see my conization patients two weeks post op, so you might need a follow up as well. If the endometrial biopsy was for abnormal bleeding then this could be more of that also. ...Read more

Cervical composition: The cervix is made up of fibrous tissue that generally does not regenerate. Once the cone biopsy removed that tissue the opening to the cervix will still be intact. However, studies have shown that with future pregnancies, premature delivery and miscarriages are a greater risk in extensive cone biopsies. ...Read more
How common is it for a pathology report to return cin111 when it is actually cin1? I had a cone biopsy and the results came back showing only cin1!
Cervical bx: High grade changes (CIN 3) often occurs in a background of lower grade changes (CIN 1 and 2). They go together. So it is possible that the area of CIN 3 was removed by the first biopsy (if that is what you had) and there was only the lower grade changes left when the cone was done. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
