Brain Cancer Treatment in Reno

Receiving a brain cancer diagnosis can bring a whirlwind of emotions and concerns. You may be anxious about whether the tumor is malignant or benign, its location, and how it will affect your life.  

 At Reno CyberKnife, we understand these worries and are dedicated to supporting you through this challenging time. We provide the essential information and advanced treatment options you need to make informed and confident decisions about your health.

What is Brain Cancer?

Brain cancer refers to the growth of abnormal cells within the brain, forming malignant (cancerous) tumors. These tumors can disrupt normal brain function, and their impact depends on their size and location. Symptoms often include headaches, seizures, and changes in cognitive abilities or behavior.

Diagnosis typically involves imaging tests like MRI or CT scans to identify the presence and characteristics of the tumor. Brain cancer affects individuals of all ages, requiring specialized medical attention for effective management.

Common Risk Factors for Brain Cancer

Understanding the common risk factors for brain cancer can help raise awareness and promote early detection. Here are some of the key factors associated with an increased risk of developing brain cancer: 

  • Genetic Predisposition: A family history of brain cancer or certain genetic syndromes can increase the likelihood of developing the disease. 
  • Exposure to Radiation: High doses of ionizing radiation, particularly from previous cancer treatments, are linked to a higher risk of brain tumors. 
  • Age: Brain cancer can occur at any age, but certain types are more common in children and older adults. 
  • Chemical Exposure: Prolonged exposure to certain industrial chemicals or solvents may elevate the risk of brain cancer.
  • Immune System Disorders: Conditions that weaken the immune system, such as HIV/AIDS or immunosuppressive treatments, can increase the susceptibility to brain tumors.

The CyberKnife System for Brain Cancer

One of the most daunting challenges in treating brain cancer is the need for extreme precision. The brain’s intricate structure demands treatments that can target cancer cells with pinpoint accuracy without harming surrounding healthy tissue. Traditional radiation therapy and surgery often struggle to balance this precision with safety, leading to potential side effects that can significantly impact a patient’s quality of life. 

The CyberKnife®  system addresses this challenge head-on. Utilizing advanced robotic technology and real-time imaging, it can deliver high doses of radiation with sub-millimeter accuracy. This means that brain cancer patients can receive treatment that is not only effective but also minimizes damage to healthy brain tissue, reducing the risk of side effects such as cognitive decline or neurological damage.

Advantages of the CyberKnife

  • Adaptability to Tumor Changes: As your treatment progresses, the CyberKnife system adapts to any changes in the tumor size or position. This dynamic approach ensures that radiation is consistently focused on the cancer cells, even as they shift or shrink. 
  • No Need for Immobilization: Unlike conventional methods, you don’t need to be immobilized with a rigid frame. The flexibility of the CyberKnife system allows you to receive treatment comfortably, reducing stress and making the entire process more tolerable. 
  • Less Time in Treatment: Your time is valuable, and the CyberKnife system recognizes that. Treatment sessions are typically shorter, allowing you to spend less time in therapy and more time living your life.
  • Non-Surgical Approach: Avoid the risks and recovery time associated with surgery. The CyberKnife system offers a completely non-invasive option, meaning you can bypass the complications and downtime of surgical procedures.
