Colposcopy is a simple procedure performed at the time of your visit if required and is designed to give you immediate answers to your concerns. It involves a similar process to taking a pap smear with the additional use of a high-definition magnifying device known as the Colposcope, which enables a very clear magnified view of the cervix.

A dilute solution of acetic acid (vinegar) is sprayed onto the cervix during this examination to help clarify the abnormal cells better. A small biopsy may be required at this time with a specialised device which takes a split second to perform usually with minimal discomfort. Dr Land will give immediate feedback as to what he is thinking and then definitive results will usually be discussed via Telehealth within a week.

Almost always yes, unless you experience any unexpected discomfort most biopsies that may be required should not stop you doing whatever you have planned for the day.

Yes it can be done in the rooms in many patients. Dr Land will advise if this is an option for you depending on your individual circumstances. The best time to do this is generally at the tail end of your period.

Your referral needs to be faxed or emailed prior to any appointment being made for Dr Land to triage the referral. This also enables us to maximise our ability to have everything necessary for you to get the most out of your appointment.

We can usually access scans/imaging and reports via internet software so there is no need to bring hard copies of your scans to your appointment.  Please nominate the radiology practice that you went to (Qld Xray, Qscan etc) so we can access these images prior to your appointment if necessary to maximise your appointment.
