Colposcopy allows a physician to diagnose cervical abnormalities such as dysplasia or cancer. It utilizes a colposcope, which is a special microscope that provides an illuminated, magnified view of the cervix and can detect physical and visual changes in the cervical tissues. Colposcopy allows identification of pre-cancerous growths and abnormal cells on the cervix.
The global Colposcope Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 628.05 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.6% over the forecast period 2024 to 2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Colposcopy offers opportunity for early detection of cervical abnormalities and prevention of cervical cancer through timely treatment. Cervical cancer develops slowly over time, so finding and treating precancerous cervical lesions or early-stage cancer can prevent the development of invasive cancer. Colposcopy plays a vital role in detecting these pre-cancerous cells and lesions through a magnified examination of the cervix, vagina and vulva using a colposcope. This allows physicians to diagnose cervical abnormalities at an early stage and provides opportunity for preventive treatment before cancer develops. Rising awareness regarding benefits of early detection and prevention of cervical cancer through screening programs is expected to drive the growth of the colposcope market over the forecast period.
