Cancer: Cervical & Ovarian Message Board

Cancer: Cervical & Ovarian Board Index

I was reading on another thread that there was a difference between these 3 items, but I'm not really clear on the differences.

I know the ECC is a sort of pap smear in the cervical canal. I think there are two different tools the doctor can use to do an ECC.

I know the different cone biopsies include LEEP/Lletz and cold knife cone biopsies. Those involve the doctor removing tissue deep in the cervical canal and a wider swath of cervix at the bottom.

But how do endocervical samplings or biopsies differ from those? Are these types of biopsies the pinch or punch biopsies that a doctor can do to the exocervix while doing the colpo?

I hope this isn't an abundantly clear answer and I'm just missing the differences.

Thanks ya'll!
