CRYOTHERAPY FOR PROSTATE CANCER

Cryotherapy involves freezing the cancer cells and cutting off their blood supply. Tiny needles are placed right into the tumor. Argon gases are passed through the needles and exchanged with helium gases. This causes a freezing and warming cycle. The frozen, dead tissue then thaws and is naturally absorbed by the body.

 

Cryotherapy can be used to treat a variety of problems. When used to treat prostate cancer, a warming catheter is put into the urethra to keep it from freezing. The needles are guided into the prostate tumors using ultrasound imagery to guide them.

 

INDICATIONS FOR CRYOTHERAPY

 

Cryotherapy may be a good treatment option for prostate cancer treatment in the following situations:

 

  • Men with cancer in the prostate gland that hasn’t spread to other parts of the body
  • Men who aren’t well enough to get radiation or procedure
  • When the goal isn’t to cure, it may be useful for men who have cancer that has spread beyond the prostate gland and need treatment for symptoms
  • Sometimes it’s used for men who have had unsuccessful results with radiation therapy

 

Some experts believe cryotherapy can be helpful when the prostate cancer cells aren’t as sensitive to radiation.
