Can My Radiotherapy Treatment be Repeated?

Last year I underwent stereotactic radiotherapy on a paraaortic lymph node (not cyberknife). Are there circumstances where this treatment can be repeated and can this be done at a cyberknife centre when the first treatment was at a conventional radiotherapy hospital?

If your consultant felt another course of radiotherapy was necessary you certainly could change methods of surgical radiotherapy. It is my understanding that the cyberknife method differs only in precision; the underlying radio therapy is administered as in the stereotactic method.

I recommend that you discuss this with your consultant, remembering of course to contact your personal advisory team at AXA PPP should you wish to have further treatment using your policy.
