Thank you for your question.
Peritoneal carcinomatosis is a term which means extensive, or very widespread, metastasis of cancerous tumors onto the inside surfaces of the abdomen.  It may cause the accumulation of fluid in your abdomen which can result in increased weight, increased abdominal girth and difficulty breathing.
It is typically treated with surgery to remove the tumor, also called a “debulking” procedure which may reduce the symptoms.  This is frequently done via an abdominal incision and typically involves the use of chemotherapeutic washings.
They cyberknife system is a non invasive robotic system used to treat difficult tumors using highly focused radiation.  The technology has been shown to be effective in the treatment of various cancers in the body.  
There are a few series of trials which have used this technology in the treatment of prostate cancer as an alternative to surgery.  These studies, however, are too new to show the long term benefit of this technology in the treatment of prostate cancer.
It would be prudent to discuss all of your options with your surgeon.  There is strong evidence that it may be a viable treatment option, but this is a decision that should be made after candid conversations between you and your surgeon.  

Best,
