Renal cell Stage 4 in 2 Areas

I have Withe cell Renal Cell carcinoma in two areas at least for the past 2-3 years, no new mets, One is a Pleaural based node in the posterior lower left hemitorax measuring 2.5cm (biopsy 2010) and a rim enhancing left sided retrocrural lymph nodemeasuring 2.6cm. I have been in chemotherapy for 4 years and currently taking Votrinet 800mg daily for 2 months. I will like to use the Cyber-knife (high doses of radiation) to treat this 2 areas besides the chemotherapy. Can you give me your opinion, is it possible? have you done it on similar cases? Thanks

It is possible, very reasonable, and highly likely to be successful on these two areas. It won't prevent new areas from developing
