A very good friend of mine has adenocarcinoma in his lung. He has been told that there is a tumour near the bottom of the sternum that they cannot get to and it is this one that will kill him. Can CyberKnife treat this sort of tumour?

I would be very grateful for any advice. Thank you in advance.

All the best,
