Cryosurgery is a method of destroying diseased tissue by freezing the cervix. It is performed as an office procedure using a probe. The probe has a silver tip which is placed against the tissue and the freezing is started. The tip of the probe reaches a low temperature required to treat the area. You may notice the sound of air passing through the probe. This is normal and is the sound of the refrigerant gas which cools the tip.
