Caption: Carcinoma of the cervix, colposcopy. Carcinoma of the cervix, which has had acetic acid applied. Acetic acid causes whitening of abnormal epithelium, allowing detection of cervical abnormalities such as erosion and cancer. Carcinoma of the cervix is one of the most common cancers affecting women. It has well-defined pre-cancerous stages and cervical smears can detect abnormal changes in the cells on the surface of the cervix before any cancer appears. If left untreated the cancer can spread to deeper parts of the cervix and surrounding tissues. Treatments include laser surgery, diathermy and cryosurgery.
