My dad has 4 metastasis in the liver, 2 are 8.5 cm, 1 is 7.5 cm and 1 is 1.3 cm. The origin was removed from the illeum and diagnosed as poorly differentiated neuroendocrine carcinoma. The operation happened 7 months ago. Since then, he was treated with temodal since he had in the past heart condition (2 heart attacks and cardiac arrest). The treatment didn't help and two weeks ago he was given chemotherapy (cisplatin and carboplatin). There are no other metastasis other than in the liver. Do you think cyberknife treatment can help removing the metastasis?
