This fact sheet is for men who are thinking about having cryotherapy to treat their prostate cancer.

Cryotherapy uses extreme cold to freeze and destroy cancer cells. It might be an option if your cancer hasn't spread outside your prostate, or has just started to break out of the prostate. It can also be used to treat recurrent prostate cancer. But it's only available in specialist centres or as part of a clinical trial.
