In brief: Biopsy of cervix

Cervical cancer usually is, diagnosed by gynecologist, or a physician, who is comfortable doing a gynecologic examination.
Abnormality seen in the pap smear or finding lesion on clinical examination during a pelvic exam may prompt biopsy. It is treated by surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, or a combination of these treatments, depending on stage and extent of disease involvement.
