Cryo is cryotherapy, where a health care provider applied liquid nitrogen to lesions (such as warts) and freezes them. TCA is trichloroacetic Acid, and is probably the most common method of removing warts. It's applied topically by the provider in their office.

Read more about these and other treatments for genital warts at http://www.ashastd.org/hpv/hpv_learn_warts.cfm#7

Best,
Fredo
