My mother is a diagnosed case of left breast cancer. Her surgery has been done on 2011 at hisar where her infected breast has been removed completely. And doctor has said after seeing biopsy report that only chemotherapy will be done radiation not required. And we started her chemotherapy at hisar from different doctor as hisar is near to my hometown .And while treatment was done she was doing good. But again after 1 and half year she saw one lump in left neck. And then again she had to go through under chemotherapy as well s radiation. Again she was fine for 1 year after all that treatment. Then next year she got the same problem in right neck bone. This time doctors started giving her Hertraz 440 mg Injection and again she got cured fully. But the story does not ends here. Again after one year she got saw some lump just above and between both the breasts and the doctor again started with Heartraz injections and now its been more than 18 months she intaking those injections but it is not taking any effects now, Till last moth she went for the full body PET test the report said the lump has not reduced from when we diagnosed oit but it has not increased also. But now we seeing it again started increasing, so Can you please suggest something now which treatment we should give her. We are literally very much worried. Thanks for your help in advance.
Radiation therapy is one of the most important tools to combat cancer. However, conventional radiation therapy is long course (usually 6 to 7 weeks) treatment and may have severe acute side effects including skin and mucosal reactions, diarrhea, feeding difficulties and others. Higher dose radiation is also not possible to deliver due to limitations related to toxicities. CyberKnife is a precise radiation therapy technique by which high dose radiation therapy can be delivered only to the tumor and minimal dose to the normal structures.
- CyberKnife treatment is a short course treatment (usually only one to 5 days) and have no or minimal side effects. Many tumors which are ‘resistant’ to conventional radiation are ‘sensitive’ to high dose radiation delivered by CyberKnife. “CyberKnife has unique system that it can track moving tumors and treat them with immaculate accuracy”. Tumors in moving organs such as lung and liver can be treated most effectively CyberKnife. Dr Debnarayan Dutta, Consultant in Radiation Oncology at Apollo Speciality Hospital, Chennai commented “there are few tumors which were thought to be not treatable are now being treated successfully with CyberKnife”.
- Master ShreeVaishnav, a 6 year old boy from Kerala suffering with choroidal haemangioma (eye lesion) had vision loss in both the eyes, he was referred from Sankar Netralaya for treatment. He was treated with CyberKnife and at 2 months follow up evaluation his vision had dramatically improved. “We are thankful to Dr Dutta for giving vision back to my son” told Shree Vaishnav’s father who was elated about CyberKnife. “CyberKnife has opened a modern and effective option for these diseases and we are happy with the result” said Dr Prativa Mishra, eye specialist involved in Shree Vaishnav’s treatment.
- CyberKnife is a revolution in cancer treatment; it provides effective, short course, minimal toxic and high dose treatment in brain, lung, liver, pancreas, prostate, head and neck and many other tumors.
