Title: Laser Therapy
Description: Laser treatment for skin cancer; drawing shows a gloved hand holding an instrument with a laser light over a small area on the lower arm of a patient.

Laser treatment uses an intense, narrow beam of light to remove or destroy abnormal tissue. It is often used to treat precancers on the surface of the body, such as actinic keratosis, and may be used to treat some types of skin cancer.
