Cervical cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths in females in India. Unfortunately it is detected at a late stage when it is not curable. If cervical cancer is detected at early stage it is can be surgically removed. The peculiarity of cervical cancer is that in early stage it does not cause any noticeable problem to the patients. The only effective way to detect cervical cancer is colposcopic examination by a trained gynaec-oncosurgeon. Colposcope is an optical instrument which detects cervical cancer at a very early stage with high accuracy. It is a portable instrument with a light source and magnifying lenses to examine woman's vagina and cervix for cancer and abnormal areas that may become cancer.

Colposcopy is a simple, 10- to 15-minute procedure that is painless and performed in a gynecologist's clinic. You are positioned on the examination table li ke you are for a Pap smear, and 5% acetic acid (such as common table vinegar) is placed on the cervix and the changes that appear in cervix are evaluated. Expert gynec- oncosurgeon at shalby hospital combines colposcopy and Pap smear in the most judicious way to screen cervical cancer at a very very early stage. Shalby hospital has installed the state of art leisgang cml colposcope. It is a high definition unit.

One of the most frightening times in a woman's life is when the gynecologist says that your cervix is not healthy looking or your Pap smear results are abnormal and you may have cervical cancer. Although you might think an abnormal Pap smear or a unhealthy cervix means that you have cervical cancer, the fact is that it may be because of infection or very very early stage of cervical cancer which can be differentiated with the help of colposcopy.
