Patient Stories

Edward Challoner

Edward Challoner was diagnosed with secondary tumour of the lung in 2013. The primary cancer was a skin lesion on his head and was treated with surgery and a skin graft. As it was located where surgery was not possible, the lung cancer needed specialist treatment. He was offered the change to take part in the revolutionary CyberKnife treatment at The ‘Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham. The treatment was successful with follow up appointments confirming that the cancer had been destroyed.

He continues to remain in good health and would like to thank the staff at the Queen Elizabeth hospital for the fantastic treatment he received there. He is keen to stress that he would not be here today without the intervention of the medical teams.
