Pre-cancer spot in the ankle removed with liquid nitrogen, burning, shooting pains, black swab after 5 weeks. Normal?

I had a pre- cancer spot (visible since June, removed in Sept.) removed agressively with liquid nitrogen . Location: front of ankle, left leg. It is still very sore - burning, shooting pains, tenderness, black scab. The removal was 5 weeks ago today. Is the healing time and lingering soreness usual? Thank you. DHuddle

Hi and welcome to hcm.
It could be prolonged healing but this is nothing unusual. If symptoms persist for more than 8 weeks you should seek medical attention. There could be skin infection in this case. In future,malignant lesions shouldn't be treated by tjhis methidr. It should be surgically removed. Regards
