Hey, I have been diagnosed with a 3cm arachnoid cyst on my right side above my ear. My only symptom is constant balance issue when walking. Can cyberknife treat this? Thank you!

I don't think it would be useful. CK just treats growing tissues, such as tumors, and would not be expected to have any significant effect on a cyst
