While symptoms of liver cancer can include abdominal pain, jaundice and fever, among other signs, some patients with liver cancer may not show symptoms until the disease has advanced and spread beyond the primary tumor site. When this occurs, tumors that develop in secondary sites are known as metastatic liver cancer.
For patients with metastatic liver cancer, it is important to research and understand your treatment options. Ask your physician about various approaches and their outcomes. Your doctor may recommend a procedure called stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT).
At CyberKnife Center of Chicago, we treat metastatic liver tumors with SBRT using CyberKnife® technology. During the procedure, the CyberKnife moves around the patient delivering high doses of radiation precisely targeted to the tumor. SBRT is complete in five or fewer outpatient treatment sessions, and patients typically return to their normal activities immediately following treatment.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with metastatic liver cancer, contact our center at (331) 221-2050 to find out if CyberKnife can be integrated into your treatment plan.
