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

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.
@kowalski, I encourage you to call Mayo Clinic and inquire about their approaches to treating anal cancer. Here is the contact information http://mayocl.in/1mtmR63
