I have been diagnosed with rcc on oct 15, 2010 and had right kidney removed on oct 25, the cancer had spread to the right pelvic area where there was a small lesion. I go to see if cyberknife will be possible tomorrow. Is this normally an option? I had radiation in nov with no success.

It very likely be an option.  Let's see what they say after they review your films.  How was the treatment unsuccessful in November?

They may need to try a different set-up. Should just be a temporary set-back
