More than 1 million new cases of skin cancer are reported annually in the world. According to the WHO, this malignant tumor is located at 5th place in terms of detection frequency. However, it does not occupy a leading position among the causes of death. In most cases, non-melanoma skin cancer can be successfully treated, as it can be detected at an early stage. One method of treatment for small tumors is cryodestruction. 

Principle of cryotherapy action 

When carrying out therapy, tissue is frozen with a very low temperature. To do this, the doctors use liquid nitrogen. The freezing results in ice crystals that damage the cell membranes. The outcome of a quality procedure is irreversible necrosis – tissue viability cannot be restored after thawing.

Typically, cryotherapy involves tumor freezing 2-3 times in a row. The application time is from 30 to 180 seconds. It depends on the depth of tissue damage by the tumor process, hydration and microcirculation of the skin. The tissues thaw for 3 minutes and freeze again. This approach reduces the risk of relapse.

How is cryotherapy performed? 

The classical version of cryotherapy involves: 

  1. Irrigation of the tumor area with liquid nitrogen without direct contact with the skin. It can be used only for superficial neoplasms with a shallow depth of invasion. 
  2. Liquid nitrogen application. It is in direct contact with the skin. The most common option is cryotherapy. It causes the death of cancer cells at a distance of 1 cm from the surface of the skin. It is usually used to treat neoplasms not more than 2 cm in diameter, including multiple ones. 

The applique technique is the most common. The doctor begins to destroy the formation from the center to the periphery.  He continues exposure until the tissue necrosis zone spreads 0.5 cm or more from the edge of the tumor towards the visually unchanged skin. 

In case of invasive skin cancer, modern German clinics use puncture cryotherapy. It involves a thorough diagnostics using ultrasound, dopplerography, or MRI. The next steps include tumor mapping, surgery planning. Skin cancer often spreads along the blood vessels and between the muscles. The planning is followed by a surgical procedure itself. It is performed under general anesthesia. The probes with a diameter of 1.5 to 5 mm are introduced into the areas of tumor spread. They pump liquid nitrogen. The objective of the intervention is to provide necrosis of the tumor zone, which extends to healthy tissue by 0.5 cm or more.

Following measures after the procedure

The destruction of the neoplasm results in a skin defect. It will be immediately treated with an antiseptic. In the future, inflammatory reactions in this zone are possible. A posttraumatic edema lasts 2-3 days. To prevent wound infection, local antiseptics and dressings will be used within 1 week. The doctor may prescribe antibacterial drugs inside. 

As a rule, the wound becomes dry after 1 week. A dry necrotic scab forms on its surface. There is no more swelling and redness, as well as there is no threat of infectious complications. Therefore, further medical supervision is not required. The scab will disappear after about 1 month. 

Advantages and disadvantages of cryosurgery 

Skin cancer removal with liquid nitrogen has the following benefits: 

  • Minimal pain – small tumors can be removed without anesthesia 
  • Simplicity and cheapness
  • No need for patient hospitalization
  • Good tolerance of the procedure, even for elderly and debilitated patients 
  • Bloodless intervention 

At the same time, cryosurgery has many serious drawbacks that limit its widespread use. The strongest one of them is a high risk of relapse. Within 5 years after treatment, the tumor recurs in 4-9% of patients if it was removed for the first time. Recurrent skin cancer appears again within 5 years after cryosurgery in 13-22% of patients.

In the classic version, cryodestruction helps to remove tumors with an invasion of not more than 1 cm. With a deeper spread, puncture cryodestruction is used.
