Answer

Although not ED procedures, the following are listed strictly for educational purposes and to assist readers in understanding and managing potential presenting complications:

  • Colposcopy (stereoscopic microscopy): This is very useful to identify (mostly) cervical lesions, which are identified better using acetic acid.

  • Biopsy: Biopsy is indicated for lesions that are atypical, recurrent after initial success, or resistant to treatment or in patients with a high risk for neoplasia or immunosuppression.

  • Anoscopy

  • Antroscopy
