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 wife has a large benign tumor by her sacrum. The doctors called it a myelolipoma which from what I understatnd is just a fatty tissue tumor. It is bigger than a grapefruit and apparently growing. Would the cyberknife radiation procedure work on this type of tumor?

This  should be treated surgically in all probability. It is pretty large to treat with CK

Definitely not for CK in my opinion.
