Kidney Mass

My father in law had kidney cancer about 5 years ago and they discovered a small 2 cm mass on his kidney. He has been having yearly CT scans and this year it revealed it had grown to 3 cm. He saw his specialist to discuss radiation this week but has now stated he believes they can inject it and freeze it. I've worked in the medical field for 15 years and it sounds good but I have some concerns. Once they freeze it do they remove it? If not what is the risk of it breaking off and spreading. They state this should get 70% the first time and then do another ct on 3 months and see. He is 83 years old and I really don't think radiation was a good choice for him due to other health concerns. What is this procedure(my mother in law) couldn't remember. They live in Florida and I live in NY. Can you assist me with some education on this?
