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.

Greetings, My mother has a 30 by 25 mm macroadenoma that was discovered 3 months ago. Her prolactine and FSH levels have increased (27.9ng/ml and 15.6 IU/l respectively). She is 58 years old. She hasn't tried any treatment. Could she be a candidate for the treatment you are offering? I am ready to offer all necessary complementary information. Thank you.

She could be but usually with larger tumors we recommend a transnasal resection first to reduce the bulk. It can be done pretty safely and often makes the radiosurgery safer.
