Cryotherapy (also known as cryosurgery or cryoablation) is a less common treatment for prostate cancer which uses a needle-thin probe and low temperature gases to destroy prostate cancer tumours by freezing them. It may be used if your prostate cancer has come back following radiation therapy treatment, or as an alternative to surgery or radiation therapy for men with low-risk, early-stage prostate cancer.
