Electrosurgery - Overview

Electrosurgery is a procedure that converts the electrical energy (current) to heat energy that may be used for various medical purposes, such as to stop the bleeding (hemostasis) or to destroy abnormal skin growths.

Electrosurgery helps to:

  • Treat cancers on the outermost skin layer (superficial), especially if they are in an area where appearance is not a concern.
  • Remove a small basal cell carcinoma.
  • Remove a squamous cell carcinoma in its earliest, non-invasive form
  • Remove a new skin cancer.


Risks of using curettage and electrosurgery for skin cancer include:

  • Skin changes, such as scarred or tight skin, slightly indented or raised skin, or change in skin color to red or white.
  • Bleeding.
  • Pain.
  • Infection.
  • Recurrence of skin cancer.

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.
