Patient Forum

The CyberKnife Patient Forum is designed to provide a place for people who have been diagnosed with cancer, their family and friends, to exchange useful information and provide support to one another. The Forum may also help people find answers to questions they have about the CyberKnife treatment experience. Accuray strives to facilitate these exchanges and encourage discussions. Recently we have experienced some aggressive or inappropriate spam postings. We are diligently working to resolve this issue and thank you in advance for your patience.

i WAS RECENTLY DIAGNOSED WITH A LARGE MASS IN MY ABDOMEN ON THE LEFT SIDE. I'VE HAD 2 DIFFERENT CT SCANS AND THEY STILL CAN'T TELL EXACTLY WHAT IT'S ATTACHED TO OR WHERE IT ORIGINATED. THEY WANT TO DO AN MRI THEN REMOVE THE TUMOR BY REMOVING THE KIDNEY. MY QUESTION IS, WOULD THE CYBERKNIFE PROCEDURE BE A VIABLE ALTERNATIVE FOR ME? I AM MAIL, 53 & IN REASONABLY GOOD HEALTH. WHAT MORE WOULD YOU NEED TO MAKE A MORE INFORMED SUGGESTION?
