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.

Hi, I desperately need help/ advice. My little cousin has been diacnosticated with 5 cm brainstem tumor yesterday. Here in Romania the doctors gived him no chance. I hadn`t time to read all about CyberKnife, please tell me if it`s possible to do something with radiosurgery. If anyone of you had the same diacnostic or knows something about this, please let me know. Thank you,
VChijer

You cn get the scans reviewed by a CK center near you, but this is not likely to b something that CK can help with. You would have trouble giving enough dose to the tumor without overdosing the brainstem

Dear Gilberto (or whatever your real name is): it is particularly disgusting to see someone use the distress of a parent with a child with a serious brain tumor to troll for patients. To all on these forums: When you see these postings that have a link to Cancer Support etc, you are being trolled. A series of cancer centers in Nevada is trying to obtain patients with posts that appear to be real but are just an excuse to put in a link to their site. My guess is that if they are that hard up for patients, their quality must be poor, although I have no real way of knowing. Certainly, good centers don't engage in this sort of activity.
