B12 and folate can have positive or negative effects on cancer growth. Given their capacity to promote cancer growth (and B12 specifically can promote prostate cancer growth), if I had cancer I would avoid B12 (especially cyanocobalamin) and folate unless I had a deficiency or specific indication for them.

For the past 35 years men have asked me how to address their prostate cancer or frequent urination at night. Based upon my profiling the men for the first 10 years, I concluded that not all male coffee drinkers have prostate cancer but 99 percent of men who have prostate cancer consume coffee or caffeine products. The COMBINATION of caffeine and B12/Folate is probably supports cancer growth. The first step in any prostate cancer protocol is for the man to eliminate caffeine that severely impedes any approaches to the condition.

Opinion: Depriving anyone of nutrition as a cancer therapy is foolish.  Sure we can starve someone to death and they won’t die of cancer, but that wasn’t a great approach to treating the cancer and providing them with the best and healthiest life they could lead.  Spend your time researching and considering other options and don’t waste it on thinking about avoiding nutrition.
