Cauterization of the cervix is a medical technique that can be performed by a gynecologist to remove certain lesions on the cervix. Therefore, this procedure is indicated in cases of:
- Chronic cervicitis, when antibiotics have not worked.
- Precancerous lesions.
- Lesions due to human papillomavirus (HPV).
However, the specialist must assess individually whether or not to perform this technique on the patient, since the cauterized tissue cannot be sent to the laboratory for analysis.
