Dysplasia Clinic

The Dysplasia Clinic, part of the Women's Gynaeoncology Service, provides specialist care for women with screen detected precancerous abnormalities of the cervix, vulva and vagina. It offers a comprehensive diagnostic, treatment and management service for women with an abnormal cervical screening result or post coital bleeding.

Clinical inclusion

All women with an abnormal cervical screening result, post coital bleeding or a suspected precancerous condition can be referred by a GP or specialist doctor.

Frequency

Clinics are held every week day, apart from Thursday. 

Triage

The Dysplasia Service screen-detected pre-cancerous abnormalities of the cervix, vulva and vagina and are triaged according to the NHMRC guidelines, as well as post coital bleeding.

Dysplasia

Cervix:   Post coital bleeding in women 35 years and older that persists for more than 4 weeks

Specific recommendations

In patients found on examination of the cervix to have clinical features that raise the suspicion of cervical cancer, an urgent referral should be made. A cervical smear test is not required before referral, and a previous negative cervical smear result is not a reason to delay referral. These referrals may be triaged to the Oncology Unit.
