Thereafter, if there are suspicious areas that require further investigation, is  taking samples of cervical tissue, which means that biopsy samples are sent to the patholoanatomic  laboratory where  essentially  diagnosed. According to the diagnosis is formatted the further plan of treatment, or conservative (most cases) or invasive.
