Dysplasia Clinic

The Dysplasia Clinic at UCSF Medical Center offers state-of-the-art care for men and women with dysplasia, including anal and cervical dysplasia, as well as genital warts and related conditions.

Anal dysplasia, caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV), is a pre-cancerous condition that may lead to anal cancer. It is especially common among patients infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).

Cervical dysplasia also is a pre-cancerous condition, typically caused by HPV and often detected by an abnormal Pap smear. Vulvar disease or pain also is associated with cervical dysplasia.

The Dysplasia Clinic provides a full range of screening and treatment options including colposcopy, a visual examination of the cervix; loop excision to remove abnormal tissue; laser therapy; and high-resolution anoscopy to view the anus, anal canal and lower rectum.

We also offer the ThinPrep Pap test, an improvement on the conventional Pap test that was approved by the federal Food and Drug Administration.
