Metastatic TNBC in one lymph node

I had a lung lobe removed in June because of a single metastatic TNBC tumor. When they removed the lobe, they found some positive lymph nodes. My most recent CAT/PET shows a lymph node in the middle of my chest has grown since the last scan. Would cyberknife be effective at removing this node?

Probably, but the question must be asked as to whether that is best treatment. Other nodes are likely to show up
