Biopsy (Definition)

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

Had cervical biopsy mon & was told to wait 3-5 days before sex tired to have sex Thur & didn't continue due to cramps & later blood discharge am I OK?

Cervical biopsy: The cervix has many small blood vessels, so the bleeding is expected following a biopsy, especially if irritated by sexual relations too soon. Just refrain from sex for another 3-4 days, and it will heal, but you might have some minor spotting or even bleeding, but no harm has been done. ...Read more

How many samples are typically taken for a cervical biopsy?

Depends on what: Your doc sees and what your pap showed and how confident and good he is at doing the colposcopy and biopsy, i try to do the minimum which is one biopsy on the cervix and an ecc which is a small scraping of the endocervical canal the part that we cannot see, so the minimum is 2 but the max could be 5-6 and yoiu will bleed but your dco will use medicine to stop teh bleeding so u will have discharge. ...Read more

I cannot they use a topical anesthetic for a cervical biopsy?

I cannot they use a topical anesthetic for a cervical biopsy?

Biopsy: A cervical (cone) biopsy is a fairly large piece of tissue so a topical is unlikely to help much. Also, the local anesthetic could theoretically change the appearance of cells under the microscope for the pathologist. This is often done under significant sedation of a spinal anesthetic. ...Read more

Is cervical biopsy painful ? Are they giving any pain killers or something?

Yes, but........: People have different tolerances to pain. A minor cramp to one person may be agony in another. However, if the cervical biopsies are small, the average person experiences a sharp sensation for a second, then a dull discomfort for another minute or two. Consider taking two advils (ibuprofen) an hour or so before. Never hesitate to ask these questions of your practitioner! ...Read more

After a recent colposcopy & cervical biopsy I had a huge tissue sac filled with black stuff come out without warning. What caused that?

After a recent colposcopy & cervical biopsy I had a huge tissue sac filled with black stuff come out without warning. What caused that?

Need evaluation: Did you save the "sac filled with black stuff"? It may be a blood clot. You did not say if it came out of your vagina or rectum. In any case, you need to be examined to determine if there is a lesion either in your vagina/cervix, or colon. Please consult your doctor. ...Read more

Had a cervical biopsy done now im having a tissue discharge. Looks kind of like skin and its been going on about 2 days now. Is this normal?

Had a cervical biopsy done now im having a tissue discharge. Looks kind of like skin and its been going on about 2 days now. Is this normal?

Maybe: Sometimes coagulated blood looks like tissue (it's the plasma portion of your blood, that when coagulated takes on a stringy, tan appearance). Cervical biopsies are typically not too invasive, just a pinch or two of tissue. I would be worried if you have a fever or are soaking a pad in 2 hours or less, or bleeding more than a period. Otherwise, weird discharge is probably okay, just blood. ...Read more

I have had 4 kids vaginally I've had a cervical biopsy a year ago. Sex used to be comfortable but now its sometimes painful and uncomfortable why?!

Dyspareunia: Painful sex (dyspareunia) is a fairly common complaint. Unfortunately, without a thorough history and physical exam including vaginal and possibly further work up, it's impossible to say what's causing it. 4 vaginal deliveries if uncomplicated should not be the cause. Cervical biopsy - why? What was the cause? How did it turn out? ...Read more

What to expect after a cervical biopsy?

What kinds of cervical biopsy are there, and do they hurt?

Several: A smear / brush shouldn't hurt. A little local anesthetic is plenty for an incisional biopsy. A conization for attempted cure of preinvasive cancer is more but won't be nearly as annoying as a wisdom tooth and gives a strong likelihood of a cancer cure. Good luck, and i'm pleased that you are taking a proactive approach to your health. ...Read more
