Cervical Biopsy

Cervical biopsy (cervical tissue sampling) is a method of taking a tissue sample of the cervix, which is then sent for further pathohistological analysis. In the pathology department, the received tissue samples are examined in detailed and analyzed under a microscope. Based on this examination, a specialist (pathologist) establishes a pathohistological diagnosis, which is then sent in written form (PHD report) to the gynecologist. Further medical procedures and treatment plans depend on the findings.

Cervical biopsy is most commonly performed following a colposcopic examination which suggests further tissue evaluation. If the entire suspicious lesion is removed by biopsy, the procedure is called an excisional biopsy, serving both diagnostic and therapeutic purposes simultaneously. In cases where only a tissue sample from the cervix is taken because the entire lesion cannot be removed, then it is called  incisional biopsy (diagnostic procedure), after which, depending on the findings, further treatment is performed.

Biopsy is a crucial method as it enables the pathohistological verification of the sample, allowing the differentiation between benign and premalignant versus malignant changes, ultimately leading to the attainment of a final diagnosis.
