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.

I am taking xalkori, lung tumor has decreased in size. It is now 30 mm x 19 mm. It is in the right lower lobe posterior to the right helium. I have a precarinal lymph node that is 10 mm x 9 mm. Brain mets has been treated with cyberknife with good results. Would I be a candidate for cyberknife of the lung? I was diagnosed lat November.

PRobably not unless the nodal disease could be eliminated with standard radiation, which is a good possibility
