      hello ushawk. I have a good friend that I work with that had cryosurgery for his pc about a year ago. I will talk to him Wednesday and find out what I can. I will post here or send the info to you at your email, whichever you want. Also, you might want to check out the following supplements. Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP). It is showing some promise in slowing or stopping cancer metastisis. The American Cancer Society has some info on MCP on their web site. The other is Beta 1,3 Glucans which is showing promise as an immune system booster.
      Best wishes, Jim

      Drummerboy said it well. While still just an opinion, I believe that certainly some supplements are good or bad for some cancers, they are not cures. I had the radical surgery only spent 19 hours in the hospital and returned to work in 6 days. Surgery these days is amazingly better than when we were kids. I'd get a second opinion, it can't hurt. If possible catch it before it metastasizes. Once it travels to the bones and organs treatment becomes a constant thing and it isn't curable at that point. That's where I am and while chemo has been easy for me it does take a significant amount of time from your life. Get it now!

      Keep it positive and smile:)

      Hello ushawk. I was interested in the same thing, so I did some research and found some things that interested me about diet and cancer. First some background on me. My age is 64. Diagnosed 7/27/2012. Stage 2 prostate cancer. Last PSA 2.37. Gleason 6. Low grade, slow growing contained in prostate. With my cancer teams agreement, I am waiting until March to begin external radiation. I need double knee replacement and want to have it done before treatment. Not a candidate for seed implants or surgery. Got second opinion. Verified diagnosis and safety of waiting. Took diet and supplement list to cancer team for their opinion. They said it probably wouldn't help the cancer , but that it wouldn't hurt me and since I need to lose a lot of weight, it would help me do that and get healthier and stronger for the battle ahead. I have been on the diet for 3 weeks now and have lost some weight and feel better. I am due for a PSA in late October and will post the results on this site on my page. The reason for all this is to say that after a month of ups and downs, I decided to take charge of my treatment and do everything I can do to beat this thing. I have gained peace of mind from my decisions. First a disclaimer, I am not saying this diet will or willnot help the cancer. That said, I say to you, it is your life, your body, your future and your health, so if it will ease your mind, go for it. I believe that state of mind is half the battle in this cancer war. I know it is for me. If you decide to try diet, do research, more research, ask questions, verify information and use every resource available. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me on this site at GENMAR47. MickaelV recommended some books in his answer. I have read the book, Cancer- Step Outside The Box by Ty D. Bollinger. I found it at my public library and read it. May buy it now. Don't know if its true or not, but it makes you think. I'll get off my soapbox now, but remember this, the most important factor in this equation is you. I wish you the best in your journey. God Bless. Jim
