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.

78 years old male. Has been disgnosed with renal cell carcinoma size 5*5*5 cms in center of right kidney. Has apparently spread  in upper cervical D2, D7, D9,L2, L4, L7 vertebrae.

Complicated by the fact that patient has only one kidney. Additionally signs of pluerisy in right lung, irregular spiculated nodule in right apex ,cyst in liver, enlarged prostrate, hypertension, elevated creatinine levels

Cyberknife has been a suggested treatment route. Any comments / suggestions would be appreciated.

I am not certain that taking any risk by treating the remaining kidney makes sense in view of everything else, but have the closest CK center take a look

I would be very cautious in this situation with a solitary kidney.

You have to be very careful because it's a sensitive case.
