My 84 year old mother has a mass on her pancreas. She is not in any pain in the stomach area and has a great appetite. However, she has loss weight over the past couple months. We see a surgeon on Wednesday, October 5, 2011. I want to know if Cyberknife might be an alternative treatment for her because we do not want any cutting. She has diabetes and high blood pressure. Do those conditions prevent her from the possibility of receiving Cyberknife treatments? What are the key questions that we should ask the surgeon we are meeting with? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
