Hi, There is a tumour in the lung with aortic infiltration. There are 2 small spreads in the other lung as well. In one clinic we have been told there is no chance for a treatment with cyberknife. Shall we keep asking in other clinics or there is really no chance for the treatment? Beata

It does not sound too promising for Cyberknife, but it is difficult to say without seeing all the scans etc Was it a CyberKnife center that said no, or someone else?

I have been in Wieliszew Cyberknife centre in Poland.I have been told there is no point to use CK becouse the cancer will not be stopped due to metastsis in other places and that is why they do not recommend CK treatment. They have told to take chemo first to try to shrink the main tumor and hopefully it will move away from aorta-but they were not very convinced it will happen (lms). Doctors stated the aortic infiltration make the CK treatment impossible.

The aortic infiltration certainly makes it hairdos, but would need to see the scans. Sound to me like they are making the right decisions
