How Long Can You Live With Liver Cancer?

About 40 out of 100 people (40%) will survive their cancer for 1 year or more after diagnosis. almost 15 out of 100 people (almost 15%) will survive their cancer for 5 years or more after they are diagnosed.

However CyberKnife may greatly improve those odds. A study of 75 patients with liver cancer treated using the CyberKnife System found that 89.8 percent of patients showed no progression of cancer beyond the liver two years following treatment. Overall survival at the one-year follow-up was 78.5 percent and at the two-year follow-up was 50.4 percent.

The CyberKnife system is a non-surgical, robotic radiosurgery system that uses stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) to treat liver cancer. It delivers high-dose radiation in fractions to the tumor with millimetric precision, minimizing radiation to healthy tissues.

CyberKnife technology has more than two decades of clinical proof and has helped thousands of patients with various liver cancers.

The CyberKnife system uses high energy x-rays, usually in one or two sessions, to treat tumors located within the body. The CyberKnife robot can deliver radiation from virtually any angle, which allows it to maintain sub-millimeter accuracy.

Data suggests that liver metastases can be treated by CyberKnife therapy with very low toxicity and excellent local control rates ranging from 70%–100% at 1–2 years.

In patients with oligometastatic disease, CyberKnife therapy may lead to a complete remission and cure.

Most patients experience minimal side effects and can quickly return to their daily routines with little interruption to their normal activities. Your medical team will discuss all possible side effects prior to treatment and may prescribe medication to control any side effects, should they occur.

The CyberKnife is used to treat liver cancers, including medically inoperable and other complicated cases.
