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.

I just wanted to give a quick post regarding my CK treatments. I am 68, had my treatments at 63. I just received my 5 year check up. MY PSA has been <.1 for more than 4 1/2 years. The one potential (suspect but not proven to be caused by CK) is the build up of scar tissue in my urethra. Last year I had a urethral dilation and will need a follow up this year, which is not uncommon. It is not certain that the urethral restriction was caused by CK but it is a possibility. Other than that no other side effects or problems. I was even interviewed on a local Phoenix television show about month ago regarding my experience
