Patient Forum

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 am 69 yr old male with extraskelatal myxoid chondrosarcoma first diagnosis in 1994 in thigh muscle. Mastisized to lungs and had lung surgery to remove nodes in 2000 but not sucessfully. Now have 5 to 8 cm tumors in rt. Lung and many smaller in left lung. Have been told no chemo or radiaion work on this and no more surgery. Lung capaciy at 35%. Could cyberknife be an option?

Though it is a treatment option, cyberknife cannot be considered here in this case. But once confirm from the oncologists.
