Objective: Elaborating the results and comparison of cryotherapy and cold coagulation for cervical pre-cancer lesion cases in West Cakung Primary Health Center, Jakarta, Indonesia. Methods: Observation was conducted from cervical precancer lesion cases which were found by visual inspection with acetic acid (VIA) method. Those cases were directed into cryotherapy or cold coagulation based on randomization sampling. After 6-months post-therapy, the lesions were assessed. This study was administered on Cakung Barat Health Center, Jakarta, Indonesia, on April-December 2018. Of 10 cases, five were treated using cryotherapy and the rest with cold coagulation. Results: After six months follow up, 1 of 5 patients from each therapy still had VIA positive result. The side effect in form of spotting after 1 month of cryotherapy and cold coagulation were 1/5 and 3/5, respectively. There were no other side effects reported during the 6-months follow up for both treatments. Conclusions: The result of both treatments are relatively the same in converting VIA positive into negative, proved with each therapy have turned 4 for 5 patients with prior VIA positive into negative. The side effects endured by respondents were minimal in 1-month post-therapy, while there were no significant side effects after six months post-therapy.
