Cervical carcinoma remains a significant health care problem worldwide. Invasive cancer of the cervix is considered a preventable cancer. Various modalities are available for management of cervical lesions. So we conducted this study to understand the role of cryotherapy in management of benign and premalignant lesions of cervix.
Material and Method: We performed a prospective study between January 2018-December 2019 on 100 subjects chosen from patients who sought consultation for various gynaecological complaints between age group of 18-60. A colposcopy for abnormal pap smear followed by cryotherapy was done and patients were followed up with pap smear and colposcopy.
Results: 77% were disease free in 1st setting. 16%required repeat cryotherapy.7% underwent hysterectomy eventually 94% ectopy cases were disease free. 93% was overall success rate
Conclusion: Cryotherapy is powerful therapeutic tool and can reduce the morbidity and cost of managing CIN and erosion when used skillfully and appropriately. The recurrence rate seems to be acceptably low, and the risks are highly acceptable if’ follow-up is available.
