swelling after cyberknife

Hi my son had cyberknife at c2 area for ependymoma in July. The scan in October showed enhancement in this area still. The oncologist is suggesting that it didn't work but is it possible that the tumour night swell for sometime after and is it difficult to determine whether it is swelling or tumour growth. Cyberknife applied on another tumour at t11 has almost gone. Why would it work on one tumour and not another. Thanks
