Allen’s Sacrum Tumor

 

My name is Allen,

I had CyberKnife treatment at Stanford on December 17, 2003 on a tumor located in my sacrum. The tumor was eliminated at that time and all was thought well. On April 19, 2004 I went in for a PET-CT that showed the tumor had come back to the same area. I was told that CyberKnife treatment was not an option at this time. Instead, I will discuss a chemotherapy program with one of the doctors at Stanford this week. I don’t know if I’ll be a candidate for CyberKnife again, but I hope that they can shrink the tumor and buy some time, each of which I believe is something needed to help my chances of CyberKnife treatment. I believe that CyberKnife will play a major part in the elimination of cancer and I am glad to have been a patient of this technology and to have added information that might help future patients.

Sincerely,

Allen
