[Curettage and cryosurgery of epithelial skin cancer. Good 5-year results in the treatment of nose and ear cancer].Lakartidningen. 1996 Sep 18; 93(38):3241-3.L
In the article are presented the 5-year cure rates for 125 cases of epithelial skin cancer of the nose (n = 98) or ear (n = 27), treated with cryosurgery preceded by thorough curettage. As estimated with a modification of the life-table method, the cure rate was 97.7% in the nasal cancer subgroup, and 100% in the ear cancer subgroup.
