Epidermoid in Left CPA

Hi there, I have been diagnosed with an Epidermoid Cyst / Tumour in the Left CPA. It's approximately 11mm in size and is distorting a few cranial nerves. I'm currently "watching and waiting" and due my first anniversary MRI next month. Although my symptoms are very worrying and causing a lot of stress and anxiety, I am currently able to manage. Given the Epidermoid's location, is CyberKnife an option for me? Thanks in advance. Glenn

These have occasionally been treated with CK, but are usually best treated surgically
