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.

My wife - Salma aged 56 underwent surgery in July 2010 for removal of pancreatic endocrine tumor ( distal pancreatectomy+splenectomy and partial colectomy) and the present position is per the enclosed Dotanoc PET Scan. Kindly advise your frank opinion about the possibility of cyberknife treatment for Liver metastates and the peritonial metastates. Thanks and Regards MOhiddin Dubai ph:+971507846745 emal:ghouse8@gmail.com Ps:The PET report sent to: buddy@swrads.org and jspunberg@radiationoncologyinstitute.com

Patients with recurrent pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors with liver and peritoneal metastases are not good candidates for CK treatment. Sorry.
