RATIONALE: Screening tests may help doctors detect abnormal cells in the cervix early and plan effective treatment. PURPOSE: Screening trial to compare different types of screening tests used to detect cervical neoplasia.

Study summary:

OBJECTIVES: - Compare the sensitivity and specificity of primary screening strategies for the detection of cervical intraepithelial or invasive neoplasia. - Compare the positive and negative predictive values of these strategies. OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to the reason for the visit (general gynecological screening vs colposcopy referral). - Stratum 1 (general gynecological screening): Patients undergo Pap smear, visual inspection aided by acetic acid (VIA), a colposcopy, and finally a visual inspection aided by toluidine blue (VIT) followed by an acetic acid wash. A biopsy may be performed at this initial visit. Within 2-3 weeks, patients are notified of results. - Stratum 2 (colposcopy referral): Patients undergo Pap smear, VIA, colposcopy, VIT, and possible biopsy as in stratum 1. During the same visit, patients receive histologic evaluation and treatment with See-and-Treat loop electrosurgical excision procedure and/or endocervical curettage. PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 600-1,000 patients (300-500 per stratum) will be accrued for this study.


Inclusion Criteria:: - History of cervical neoplasia - Presenting for a well-woman visit, annual Pap smear, or family planning - Other gynecological or non-gynecological complaints allowed OR - Referred for colposcopy secondary to an abnormal Pap smear - Planned screening for cervical cancer - Over 18 years of age - Prior laser surgery, cryotherapy, or conization or loop electrosurgical excision procedure for cervical neoplasia allowed Exclusion Criteria: - bleeding diathesis - pregnant - prior hysterectomy - concurrent anticoagulants
