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 don't know if you can or not. A lot depends on the details of the treatment that you had and on the current scan details. I would sit down with the treatment team and let them advise you. If the tumor has grown in the area that was treated, then further treatment with the same modality is not very likely to be effective.
