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.

My husband`s biopsy results in march this year were Squamocel carc p63+, napsinA-, TTF-1-/+. The surgery attempt was botched, the surgeon`s explanation being “too risky-the tumor is attached to the vena cava”. According to the Oncology consulting team report the diagnosis is Neo pulm. I.dex.Stage IIIA, T4N0M0. The CT prior to chemotherapy registered a visible change in the right hilum KK diameter of 74mm and in the middle segment with a diameter of 25mm.  A control CT after three cycles of chemo (GC protocol) registered a significant reduction in the right hilum (42mm) and no visualization in the middle segment, as well as bronchopulmonary ln. 15x10 an infracranial ln. 13x10.  After five chemo cycles the oncologist recommended radiotherapy (the control CT registered no further reduction, the only change being 16x10 infracranial ln.). At the moment he has undergone 13 of the 23 recommended sessions of 3D conformal radiation therapy 2Gy (per fraction). After completion of the planned 3DCRT is he a candidate for cyber knife therapy? If you opinion is negative please explain

It will completely depend on the response and the scans done 2-3 months after treatment. In general, the role of CK is less compelling when there was lymph node involvement and vena cava involvement initially, but that does not rule it out
