In brief: Colposcopy

The next step is usually to take a closer look at the cervix with a procedure called a colposcopy.
Biopsies may also be taken at this time to confirm the diagnosis.

In brief: Pap smear

It depends upon the abnormality but if this is the first abnormal, then a colposcopy is most likely the next step.
