Common Gynecological Conditions
Gynecologists diagnose and treat a wide variety of women's health issues, including the following more common diseases and conditions:

Pap Test - A Pap test (sometimes called a Pap smear) is a way to examine cells collected from the cervix, or the opening of the womb, for the presence of infection, inflammation, abnormal cells and cancer.
Uterine Fibroids - Fibroids are firm, compact tumors that are made of smooth muscle cells and fibrous connective tissue that develop in the uterus.
Vaginitis - Vaginitis refers to any inflammation or infection of the vagina. This is a common gynecological problem found in women of all ages.
