Cancer Terms to Know: Local Control

If you or a loved one is preparing to undergo cancer treatment and have been presented with various treatment options, one of the many medical terms you may have heard is “local control.”

This term refers to cancer that hasn’t grown and progressed and remains at the original tumor site. Radiation is used for local control of cancer cells at the primary tumor site.

CyberKnife® has been shown to provide excellent local control rates for several types of primary and metastatic cancers. View our Clinical Trials and Research page for more information.
