|No Clear Diagnosis - More Eval Needed|
Sometimes, a colposcopy and punch biopsy aren't sufficient to produce an accurate diagnosis. This usually occurs when the dysplasia can't all be visualized because some of it is deep in the endocervical canal (the connecting area between the cervix and the body of the uterus), or because the punch biopsy and/or ECC didn't produce an adequate sample for definite diagnosis.
What's Next? The Options:
1) Endocervical Curettage, if one was not done before, or repeat biopsies.
3) Cone Biopsy
