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.

My brother has stg 4b NPC and had chemoradiation last yr. (OCT-NOV). And just last month of Auigust during his PETCTScan they found out that the tumor recurred to his parapharuyngeal space and his radiation oncologist mentioned a radiosurgery (novolis). How many percent that the tumor can be killed and cured from this kind of treatment?

We would need more information, but in general 70-90% of all tumors we treat will be controlled. CK is more accurate than Novalis
