Viral culture: This test involves taking a tissue sample or scraping of the sores for examination in the laboratory and investigations are made.
Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test: PCR is used to copy your DNA from a sample of your blood, tissue from a sore or spinal fluid. The DNA can then be tested to establish the presence of HUMAN PAPILLOMA VIRUS and determine which type of HUMAN PAPILLOMA VIRUS you have.
Blood test: This test analyzes a sample of your blood for the presence of HUMAN PAPILLOMA VIRUS antibodies to detect a past herpes infection
Immunofluoroscent test: It detects the antibody to the viral infection.
Swab test: the health care physician takes swab from vaginal site and then laboratory investigations are made.
Lumbar puncture: It is done if anyone is suggesting for spinal cord or brain infections.
HPV DNA testing
This test determines whether the individual has any of the types of HPV most likely to cause cervical cancer. It involves collecting cells from the cervix for lab testing.
The test can detect high-risk HPV strains in cell DNA before any anomalies become clear in the cervical cells.
If there are signs and symptoms of cervical cancer, or if the Pap test reveals abnormal cells, a doctor may recommend additional tests.
Colposcopy: This is visual examination of the vagina using a speculum and a colposcope, a lighted magnifying instrument.
Examination under anesthesia (EUA): The doctor can examine the vagina and cervix more thoroughly.
Biopsy: The doctor takes a small section of tissue under general anesthesia.
Cone biopsy: The doctor takes a small, cone-shaped section of abnormal tissue from the cervix for examination.
Diathermy: Diathermy using a wire loop with an electric current helps remove abnormal tissue. The healthcare professional then sends the tissue to the lab for checking.
Blood tests: A blood cell count can help identify liver or kidney problems.
CT scan: A medical professional might use a barium liquid to show up any cellular abnormalities.
MRI: Special types of MRI may be able to identify cervical cancer in its early stages.
Pelvic ultrasound: High-frequency sound waves create an image of the target area on a monitor.
