The CyberKnife Patient Forum is designed to provide a place for people who have been diagnosed with cancer, their family and friends, to exchange useful information and provide support to one another. The Forum may also help people find answers to questions they have about the CyberKnife treatment experience. Accuray strives to facilitate these exchanges and encourage discussions. Recently we have experienced some aggressive or inappropriate spam postings. We are diligently working to resolve this issue and thank you in advance for your patience.

I was diagnosed with colon cancer end of July, stented, resection and nephrectomy performed August 22nd. Tumor had grown through the colon wall, around ureter and up against aorta. Kidney and most of tumor removed but some cancer left because too close to aorta to safely operate. Cancer in 2 of 29 lymph nodes and within kidney. CT Oct. 30th. Would I be a candidate for CyberKnife in order to destroy what remains of primary tumor and can CyberKnife be performed concurrently with chemo?
