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.

Patient 81 year old male with history of leukemia (in remission ten years after diagnosis); successful Cyberknife treatment for (left) lung cancer one year ago.

Now development of a new aggressive-appearing renal mass, left kidney, 3.5 x 3.3 cm predominantly involving central renal collecting system; highly suspicious for transitional cell carcinoma.

Would Cyberknife on this type of kidney tumor be effective/successful?

Probably, but it would have to be looked at carefully to be sure we could protect the rest of the kidney. I would let the CK center that treated his lung take a look.

Bring him to the nearest CK center for check up.
