A recent comment on cyberknife caught my eye and I think it deserves comments from our members.  i have read many good results with this process from patients and medical journals.  the statement about "lasting results"  implied the cancer is initially killed off but due to weaknesses/flaws in the procedure it comes back?  please offer your experience and if you find this claim has substance.  as we all know cancer be gone one day and surface later in same or other place so is this a flaw wity cyber knife or just the nature of cancer.

If you are talking about nanoknife, then I'd like to respond. My father had nanoknife surgery in 2012 when it was just introduced as an option for pancreatic cancer patients. He lived 3 more years without any cancer showing up in his body until he passed away from a deteriated colon wall, specifically due to the amount of radiation and chemo he went through before finding nanoknife. I would HIGHLY recommend those who are considering options, to look at nanoknife. It gave my dad 3 more years with us than we would have had.

Cyberknife and nanonife are different. Nanoknife uses probes that pass  short bursts of high voltage electricity through the tumor, cyberknife uses radiation. If there is an option of cyberknife vs. conventional radiation, I believe that the cyberknife would be the better option because of less risk of collateral damage.
