Cryotherapy used in anal cancer?

Posted by kowalski @kowalski, Jul 28, 2019

Anyone have cryotherapy to kill an anal tumor? How about injections directly into the tumor?

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Colorectal Cancer group.

Hi @kowalski, I would like to share this webpage from Mayo Clinic about cryotherapy for prostate cancer: https://www.mayoclinic.org/tests-procedures/cryotherapy-for-prostate-cancer/about/pac-20384740

I also would like to tag @hughj37 and @airjohn, in hopes they may be able to offer you support and share their experience.

Is this therapy something your doctor suggested?

My doctor said," I am OK with you trying". I did not like his, try it attitude. I thought this was a premier clinic, but they stick to the old ways to treat cancer. Surgery, chemo and radiation. I went thru this in 2014 and it was miserable. Hoping Mayo has a better idea.
