LLETZ confusion

Can cancer be picked up during a colposcopy & LLETZ procedure? All the consultant told me was, this procedure was abit more tricky🤷‍♀️

Lletz procedure can be’ trickier’ if the cervix is slightly distorted, or if it bleeds during the procedure, for example, and these factors might make removing all the abnormal cells, which is what the colpocopist wants to achieve, more difficult. I’m thinking this is more likely what the colpocopist thought when he said it was trickier, as opposed to there being cancer there.

Hey Elizabeth, thank you for taking the time to reply. That makes sense as he said my cervix is too damaged from previous treatment. I have CGIN with HG HPV…so he has to go further up to treat
