My doctor has told me I might be able to have cryotherapy/cryosurgery for my stage 3 cervical cancer. Will this cure me permanently?

In brief: Doubtful

Stage 3 cervical cancer is advanced cervical cancer that has spread to the vagina and to other tissues surrounding the cervix.
It is usually treated with radiation. Cin 3 is a precancer of the cervix and may be treated with cryotherapy. There is a 8-9% failure rate using this method.
