I am a nasopharyngeal Cancer survivor. In Janto Feb 2012, I have 33 times radiation therapy and chemotheraphy in Singapore. In May 2016, due to relapse into one different location, I had 3 X 30 minutes cyberknife radio surgery in Japan. In July 2017, due to relapse to 5 different location (3 heads, 2 necks), I had 5 times cyberknife radio therapy for 5 times for 5 diffenrent location, for 20 to 50 minutes each time. My questions: Is there any number on how many times a patient could be cyberknifed? This questions is meant to understand why my cancer keep relapsing? Thanks, Robert Robianto

There is no limit on number of times, but there are limits at a particular site.
