Colposcopy for vaginal cancer

What is a colposcopy?

During this exam, also known as a vaginoscopy, your doctor uses a special microscope, called a colposcope, to look at the vaginal walls and cervix more closely. The colposcope is designed to provide an enlarged view of the areas, allowing your doctor to observe any abnormal tissue.
