According to statistics, one out of twenty cases during the inspection revealed any cellular abnormalities (dyskaryosis). In most cases, the abnormal state of the cells does not mean cervical cancer - dyskaryosis only indicates that some mucous cells can develop into cancer in the future.

Direct examination of the cervix to determine the presence of anomalies, but not the extent or magnitude of the changes. It is for these goals requires a colposcopy, which allows to examine abnormal mucosal areas in more detail and complete.

In some cases, to complete the survey may need treatment cervical mucus with special solutions, and after colposcopy cervical cancer - the biopsy, the procedure of collecting tissue samples, which are later examined under a microscope to determine the exact type of abnormalities in the cells.

In females, LH and FSH stimulate the production of estrogen by the ovaries, thus helping to regulate the menstrual cycle.

The volume released into the blood LH and FSH controls another hormone - gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) or GnRH. GnRH acts on specific receptors in the pituitary gland, stimulating the release of LH and FSH and the subsequent production of estrogen.

Buserelin is a synthetic form of GnRH. It acts on the GnRH receptors as well as the natural hormone.

At the beginning of its use buserelin causes increased production of FSH and LH and estrogen Estrogen - the key to bone health  Estrogen - the key to bone health
 . However, with prolonged use, making it less sensitive to the pituitary GnRH whereby ejected less FSH and LH and estrogen production is being phased out. This effect buserelin used to treat endometriosis.

Because it stimulates the growth of estrogen, reducing the hormone using buserelin it helps stop the growth of tissue and relieve symptoms.
