General Information Cervical Cryotherapy or Thermal Ablation

  • These are the methods to treat the pre-cancerous lesions of the cervix.
  • Cervical pre-cancers can be treated by either destroying the abnormal area on the cervix or by removing it.
  • The treatment methods are simple. Most women can be treated on the same day at Marie stopes center and sent home within a few hours.
  • Treatments that can be done at the primary care level are: –
  • Cryotherapy, a method in which the abnormal area of the cervix is frozen for a few minutes by applying special cold probes. Women can be assessed for pain and pain medication can be provided if indicated.
