 stereotactic radiosurgery -gamma knife surgery are successful in long-term control of tumor growth and in decrease of catecholamine excretion in functional tumors, however, the short duration of observation after stereotactic radiosurgery does not allow for definite conclusions. Radiation treatment is advised as the sole treatment modality for elderly or infirm patients who are symptomatic, especially those with extensive or growing tumors.Its beneficial .
