Lung Tumors: An Overview of CyberKnife Treatment

Lung cancer is a disease characterized by uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the tissues of one or both lungs that divide rapidly and form tumors. Lung tumors can be classified as non-cancerous (benign) or cancerous (malignant).

According to the World Health Organization, lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death and the second most common cancer in men and women.

While the best treatment option for each patient depends on a variety of factors including the size and stage of a tumor and a patient’s medical history and lifestyle, understanding the details of each treatment option can help inform treatment decisions.

At Oklahoma CyberKnife, we treat lung tumors using CyberKnife® technology.

  • CyberKnife is an advanced technology that performs stereotactic radiosurgery. During the procedure, the machine delivers highly focused radiation to the tumor.
  • Unlike conventional surgery for lung cancer tumors and lesions, which can require general anesthesia, a hospital stay and last more than three hours, CyberKnife can treat lung tumors without incision or sedation, allowing patients to quickly return to their normal activities following treatment.
  • CyberKnife can treat lung tumors in 5 or fewer treatments, a much shorter time period than conventional forms of radiation therapy for lung cancer, which can require consecutive treatments 5 days per week for 4 to 7 weeks.
