1. IVA Inspection (Visual Inspection with Acetic Acid).
This examination by applying the cervix and then daubed with 5 percent acetic acid, wait for 3 minutes. Last seen with the naked eye if there is no change in color or white color does not appear, then the result is negative.

This examination using colposcopy to see abnormalities of the cervix. This tool uses a powerful beam and binocular microscope with a magnification of 5 to 40 times. Currently colposcopy has become the primary method of cervical cancer screening in several European countries. This method should be done by experts who understand.
