cone biopsy

I am scheduled to go for a cone biopsy in April...what i'd like to know is if i will have the option to have my cervix removed altogether? I am 47 years old and have 3 children. I have already had my ovaries and uterus removed. I just would prefer to do that then just the biopsy.

Re: cone biopsy

Hi, the biopsy is necessary to determine if any cancerous cells are present. Removing your entire cervix would be premature. However, you can certainly discuss this with your doctor.

Good luck and hugs,

Lisa
