London: A safe, non-surgical cure for breast cancer has been offered in the form of a method that includes freezing tumors with streams of super-cold gas, say researchers. The “ice-ball” created around a tumour by the jabs not only kills it off but also cuts the recurrence risk, reports The Daily Express. In a technique known as cryotherapy, fine needles are used to inject the freezing gas around the tumour.
In this method, cancer cells are destroyed within minutes of the injections and the patient suffers little pain or scarring. The study was presented at the Society of Interventional Radiology’s 35th Annual Scientific Meeting in Florida. (ANI)
