Cervical Cancer and Cauterization

Read more about Cauterization.

Overview

This procedure removes abnormal cell growth with a hot instrument, an electrical current, or a caustic substance. It can be done in the doctor’s office.

Often prescribed in isolation, many medical therapies used to treat cervical (and other forms) of cancer can benefit from being used alongside dietary, herbal and body and mind treatments as well. Check out the cervical cancer treatment page to see all the possible treatments for cervical cancer.

Effect of Cauterization on Cervical Cancer

For this procedure, the doctor inserts a speculum into your vagina and applies the instrument or substance, which “burns” off the abnormal cell area. This procedure usually takes about 15 minutes.

After, you may have cramping and some bleeding, which may last several days.
