In a major breakthrough the 'ice-ball' created around a tumour by the injections with very fine needles, kills the tumour & ensures it does not return. In a trial, all the people were still free of cancer after 5 years. It is called cryotherapy & the patient does not need invasive surgery & suffers no major discomfort or scarring. Study led by Dr. Peter Littrup, at Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute, Detroit. He said findings suggest freezing tumours is safe & effective. Study presented at Society of Interventional Radiology's 35th Annual Scientific Meeting in Florida on 16.3.10. Cryotherapy as been used for years to treat warts, moles & .
