Women's cancers remain a major challenge for many health systems. Between 1991 and 2017, the death rate for all major cancers fell continuously in the United States, excluding uterine cervix and uterine corpus cancers. Together with HPV (Human Papillomavirus) testing and cytology, colposcopy has played a central role in cervical cancer screening. This medical procedure allows physicians to view the cervix at a magnification of up to 10%. This paper presents an automated colposcopy image

Our experimental results show that this method achieves accuracies of 83.33% and 91.66% on the four-class and binary classification tasks, respectively. These results are promising for the future use of automatic classification methods based on deep learning as tools to support medical doctors.
