Cryosurgery - Overview

Cryotherapy, also known as cryosurgery, is a commonly used in-office procedure for the treatment of a variety of benign and malignant lesions.

Cryotherapy is a minimally invasive therapy. This type of treatment removes damaged or diseased tissue that comes from a variety of medical conditions. Cryotherapy is usually done without open surgery. Most people recover quickly from the procedure and with little pain. Your provider might recommend cryotherapy for:

  • Bone cancer.
  • Cervical cancer, liver cancer or prostate cancer.
  • Precancerous cells in the cervix (lower end of the uterus).
  • Precancerous skin conditions and early-stage skin cancers, including squamous cell carcinoma and basal cell carcinoma.
  • Retinoblastoma (cancer of the retina in children).


During cryotherapy, the healthcare provider applies extreme cold to abnormal tissue. Cells can’t survive this severe cold and die after treatment.

Your healthcare provider can use a few different substances to create the intense cold used in cryotherapy. These substances can include:

  • Liquid nitrogen.
  • Liquid nitrous oxide.
  • Argon gas.

Possible risks/Complications

The risks of cryotherapy are small, but complications can occur. These complications may include:

  • Bleeding, cramping or pain after cryotherapy around the cervix.
  • Bone fractures.
  • Nerve damage resulting in loss of feeling.
  • Swelling, scarring and skin infection.

Lasers are most often used with other types of cancer treatment such as radiation and chemotherapy.
