What is Cryosurgery?
Cryosurgery is the technique where cells are rapidly frozen to temperatures below zero, which causes irreversible damage to them, thus removing malignant tissues once and for all. It is a non-surgical treatment for removing cancerous cells.
The temperature range usually maintained in this treatment is between -20 to -90. The other names for this surgery include cryotherapy or cryo-ablation.
How to Perform Cryosurgery?
Cryosurgery involves liquid nitrogen, argon, and carbon dioxide. These gases at low temperatures, especially nitrogen, can freeze anything it comes in contact with.
So, during the surgery, the skin lumps or cancerous cells within the body are exposed to the freezing mixture of gases with liquid nitrogen, and the problematic cells are destroyed.
What Are The Risks Involved In Cryosurgery?
The risks of adopting cryosurgery as a procedure for removing cancerous cells are less risky than the other available methods.
Here are a few risks associated with it:
People undergoing cryosurgery might report infections. When the extremely cold radiations get in touch, it might also infect the healthy body parts.
Exposure to extremely cold nitrogen can cause blisters on the skin as your skin is not capable of handling temperatures close to zero.
Your blood vessels close to the area of the treatment might get damaged from extreme coldness.
Exposure to a wave of extreme coldness can discolor the skin from the affected area. However, in most cases, this discoloration is for the time being; and it gets better.
Cryosurgery has no major follow-up procedure. Patients can often go home after the surgery. There are a few cases where your doctor might keep you under observation for 2-3 days. It is possible, especially, when cryosurgery is applied to internal organs.
