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.

Hi,

My brother-in-law (35 yrs old) has a brain tumour (Haemangiopericytoma) which is located on his brain stem.

He has now heard of Cyberknife and is planning to be assessed to see if he is able to travel from South Africa to the UK for urgent treatment.

He has had 4 surgeries and 39 sessions of radiotherapy but despite some initial success, the tumour has regrown and is very aggressive. Unfortunately his health has deteriorated greatly and does so daily. He can no longer walk or swallow and he has immense pressure in his head.

If he is able to travel to the UK would he still be a viable candidate for CyberKnife?

It all depends on the exact anatomy of the tumor and surrounding structures. I would contact the center and arrange for them to see the scans. That can be done through online sharing or overnight shipment of a disc.

Histiocytomas are usually going to offer as a skin lump. Since there are extra not unusual pores and skin masses inside the canine (mast mobile tumor, hemangiopericytoma), you won’t realize what tumor type it's miles without a biopsy and a pathologist read. British Essay Writers
