Can the doctors tell if a person has cervical cancer before they get a cone biopsy done?

Cervical cancer: Sometimes it's possible to tell ahead of time but not always. Usually a biopsy is done first to make the diagnosis.

In that case, it would be found on the pathology of the cone biopsy instead. ...Read more
