Metastatic Cancer Treatment in Reno 

Receiving a metastatic cancer diagnosis can be daunting and overwhelming. The spread of cancer to different parts of the body complicates both diagnosis and treatment, making accuracy crucial.

At Reno CyberKnife, we offer a new level of care where advanced technology and compassionate treatment come together to provide you with the best possible outcomes. 

What is Metastatic Cancer? 

Metastatic cancer occurs when cancer cells spread from the primary site to other parts of the body. This process involves cancer cells breaking away from the original tumor, traveling through the bloodstream or lymphatic system, and forming new tumors in other organs or tissues.

Metastatic cancer retains the characteristics of the primary cancer, meaning it is named and treated based on its original location. Understanding metastatic cancer is crucial for comprehending the complexity and progression of the disease. 

Common Risk Factors

  • Advanced Age: The risk of cancer metastasizing increases with age due to the accumulation of genetic mutations over time. 
  • Previous Cancer Diagnosis: Having a history of cancer increases the likelihood of metastasis, especially if the primary cancer was aggressive. 
  • Certain Types of Cancer: Some cancers, such as breast, lung, and prostate cancers, are more prone to metastasize than others. 
  • Genetic Predisposition: Family history of metastatic cancer can increase your risk due to inherited genetic mutations. 
  • Lifestyle Factors: Poor diet, lack of exercise, smoking, and excessive alcohol consumption can contribute to the spread of cancer. 
  • Immune System Weakness: Conditions that weaken the immune system, such as HIV/AIDS or certain medications, can increase the risk of metastasis. 
  • Late Detection: Cancers detected at a later stage are more likely to have spread beyond their original site. 
  • Chronic Inflammation: Persistent inflammation in the body can create an environment that supports cancer spread. 
  • Exposure to Carcinogens: Long-term exposure to cancer-causing agents, such as certain chemicals or radiation, can increase the likelihood of metastasis. 

The CyberKnife System for Metastatic Cancer

One of the biggest challenges in treating metastatic cancer is precisely targeting the tumor while minimizing harm to surrounding healthy tissues. The complex nature of metastatic tumors, which can spread to various parts of the body, makes conventional treatment methods risky and less effective. Traditional radiation therapy often results in significant side effects, including damage to nearby healthy tissues, leading to complications such as pain, weakness, and reduced function. 

The CyberKnife system marks a significant breakthrough in the treatment of metastatic cancer, providing patients with a highly precise, efficient, and non-invasive option. By accurately targeting metastatic tumors with pinpoint precision, the CyberKnife reduces the risk of side effects and enhances treatment outcomes. This advanced technology is reshaping the approach to metastatic cancer care, offering renewed hope and improved quality of life for patients. 

The Advantages of the CyberKnife

  • Unmatched Precision: With sub-millimeter accuracy, the CyberKnife system targets metastatic tumors precisely, minimizing harm to surrounding healthy tissues and significantly reducing the risk of complications. 
  • Non-Invasive Approach: Say goodbye to incisions and lengthy recovery periods. The non-invasive technique of the CyberKnife system ensures minimal discomfort and a faster return to your normal activities. 
  • Real-Time Tumor Tracking: The CyberKnife system adapts to your natural movements in real time, ensuring the radiation remains focused on the tumor, enhancing the effectiveness and safety of each treatment session. 
  • Fewer Treatment Sessions: The CyberKnife technology typically completes treatment in one to five sessions, a substantial reduction compared to the several weeks required for conventional therapy, saving you time and minimizing life disruption.
  • Minimal Side Effects: By accurately targeting only the tumor, the CyberKnife system greatly reduces the likelihood of side effects, allowing you to maintain a higher quality of life during and after treatment.
