Cryosurgery for cancer of the ear.

Cryosurgery may be used in almost any type of ear cancer, easily curing early lesions and proving surprisingly effective in advanced disease, even after failures of excision or radiotherapy. In large, bulky cancers, cryosurgery may be combined with excision to improve change of cure by freezing because depth of freezing is always difficult to achieve in such cases. In cases with bone destruction, mastoidecotmy facilitates treatment by freezing. Cryosurgery deserves choice over other treatments in carefully selected patients with cancer of the ear.
