A cockscomb cervix is a condition whereby the cervix is shaped like a rooster’s comb. It’s a common occurrence in daughters born to pregnant women who were given diethylstilbestrol (DES) in the 70s.

What a cockscomb cervix looks like
There are large folds or ridges of fibrous tissues and cervical cells. There may be polyps lining the cervix.

Treatment and outcomes
It is considered a benign modification, and should present no problems and does not require treatment. Some women with the cockscomb cervix may experience other issues due to exposure to DES.
