Case Study 9 : Cyberknife in Prostate cancer
An 81-year-old male was presented to Apollo Speciality Cancer Hospital with symptoms of prostatism (urgency and hesitancy in urination). The patient's serum PSA was 6.25 ng/dL. CT scan of prostate showed a nodule in the right lobe of the prostate without capsular breach and no pelvic nodal enlargement. Transrectal biopsy from the prostate confirmed the malignancy (adenocarcinoma, Gleason score 7 [4+3]). Metastatic work up was negative.

The patient was diagnosed with localised prostate cancer and was planned for CyberKnife® treatment. He received 36.25Gy in five fractions over 1 week with CyberKnife®. The patient completed the treatment without any severe acute toxicity and was not treated with hormonal medicines. Follow-up after 3 months of CyberKnife® showed 3.1 ng/dL PSA, and there was complete radiological response to the prostate nodule.
