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.

Can CyberKnife be used to treat advanced stage 4 triple negative breast cancer which has metastasized to the lymph and right lung?

It can that those sites, but I doubt it would be the sensible thing to do. When cancer has spread like that, using a highly localized treatment like CK will not likely provide much benefit. If one of those areas is problem, it could be used instead of surgery. See your nearest Ck center and get their opinion.
