National Cancer Control Month: How Technology has Evolved to Treat Cancer

April is honored as National Cancer Control Month, a month dedicated to the progress in fighting cancer and increasing awareness of who is at risk. The initiatives of Cancer Control Month include encouraging healthy lifestyles, promoting cancer screening, increasing access to quality cancer care, and improving quality of life for cancer survivors.

This month CyberKnife Center of Chicago is participating by increasing access to quality cancer care through education. As technology advances continue to improve the variety of cancer treatment options available, our experienced physicians are working to help patients identify the best options presented to them, including stereotactic radiosurgery using CyberKnife® technology.

Since its first introduction more than 20 years ago, CyberKnife has evolved as a treatment method with expanded applications for the treatment of tumors throughout the body, including those in the lungs, brain, kidney and prostate. The treatment method has been particularly beneficial to patients who are unable to undergo surgery or whose tumors are deemed inoperable.
