I have a 3 x 3,5 x 5 cm. primary liver tumor. The rest of my liver is in perfect conditions. I have Hepatitis C which caused the tumor. My doctor reccomends traditional operation to remove it. Can this type of tumor be safely treated with CyberKnife? Thanks for fast response. Ignacio, Hamburg.

There is some data, although I think most would still consider surgical resection best.
