An expert doctor will evaluate and diagnose whether the patient is physically fit for the surgery or not? That can be done by asking about medical history, and other illnesses a patient may have. After that, they may ask for a pelvic examination, pap smear, and conduct a thorough diagnosis before proceeding with a hysterectomy. A patient may need to get the following tests done to check for cancer:
- Cervical cytology (Pap test): To help detect the presence of abnormal cervical cells
- Endometrial biopsy: To help detect abnormal cells in the uterine lining
- Pelvic ultrasound: To see the size of uterine fibroids, endometrial polyps or ovarian cysts
After a diagnosis by an experienced surgeon, the patient accordingly proceeds with the operation. The advanced surgical procedure involves the removal of the uterus through the abdomen by making a very small incision using the laparoscope. The daycare treatment involves fewer cuts or incisions, no scarring, no pain, and a faster recovery.
