One of my relative was diagnosed with Pilocytic Astrocytoma with high MIB -1,3.0X3.4X2.9 cm globular non-enhancing T2/FLAIR hyperintense mass lesion in left thalamus proximal mid brain and left parahippocampal gyrus ,suggestive of low grade glioma . She was having intermittent double vision due to this. After consultation with various doctors surgery was ruled out due to the location of the tumor in the critical region and was advised radiation therapy.One of the doctors suggested that Cyberknife would be the most appropriate treatment for her.She was given cyber knife treatment in Jan this year and had been on steroids since.3 Months MRI showed reduction in tumor size but now the recent PET scan show the tumor size has increased and is affecting her movement of legs and hands on the right hand side.Did the cyberknife no have any effect on her? was it the right treatment in first place? please guide with next steps we should take.
