Grosvenor Gardens Healthcare


At Grosvenor Gardens Healthcare, situated in the prestigious areas of Belgravia and Dulwich, London, we offer state-of-the-art colposcopy services. This diagnostic procedure is a direct response to abnormal smear test results and plays a crucial role in the early detection and treatment of cervical abnormalities, including pre-cancerous changes and cervical cancer.

Understanding Colposcopy

Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is a common virus with more than 100 types, many of which are sexually transmitted. It is highly prevalent and can be contracted through direct skin-to-skin contact during sexual activity. While most HPV infections do not lead to cancer, persistent infection with high-risk types can lead to cervical cancer among women, as well as other genital and oropharyngeal cancers in both men and women.

Benefits of Colposcopy

  • Early Detection: Regular HPV screening helps detect the presence of high-risk HPV types early before they cause serious health issues.
  • Prevention of Cancers: HPV vaccination effectively prevents the majority of cervical, anal, and other genital cancers.
  • Reduction in HPV Transmission: Vaccination helps reduce the spread of HPV between sexual partners.

      What to Expect During Your Visit

      • Detailed Examination: The procedure usually takes about 15-30 minutes and involves a close examination of the cervix with the aid of a colposcope.
      • Minimal Discomfort: While the procedure may cause mild discomfort similar to a smear test, it is generally well-tolerated.
      • Immediate Feedback: In many cases, preliminary results can be discussed immediately after the examination, with a detailed follow-up once biopsy results are available.
