Dysplasia is a cell change in the tissue that may occur in the area of the vagina, the external genital, the cervix and the anus. Our target is recognising these deviations from the standard findings early in order to discuss any required treatments with you. Usually, dysplasias are noticed in the scope of the annual cancer screening due to a noticeable smear or changed appearance of the tissue. If this is the case, specialised examinations such as colposcopy and potentially a tissue sample will be necessary. Your gynaecologist referred you to us for this. Coming to our special consultation may also be sensible in case of skin diseases such as Lichen sclerosus or recurring, treatment-resistant infections.
In the scope of our dysplasia consultation, we will gynaecologically examine you with a microscopic inspection of the cervix (colposcopy), vagina and anus. In some cases, tissue samples need to be taken. This is usually not painful. Decisions on the further proceedings will be made in coordination with your gynaecologist/physician after the examination results are available. Medication and surgical treatments are possible.
In case of more severe cell changes, a small surgery under short-term anaesthesia may be necessary.
