Abstract

The current standard of care for screen-detected breast cancers is surgical excision. Cryotherapy is a promising non- surgical alternative treatment for these cancers and is performed under local anesthesia as an outpatient, circumventing the risks that come with an operation. New research also shows promising results for the treatment of breast cancer when cryotherapy is combined with immune modulation as it may help prevent tumor recurrence. We herein report a case of breast cancer treated successfully with cryoablation. A brief literature review of cryoablation as a treatment for breast cancer is added.
