Treating Vaginal Cancer TOPICS

Laser surgery for vaginal cancer

In this treatment, a beam of high-energy light is used to vaporize the abnormal tissue. This is a very effective treatment for VAIN, and works well for large lesions. However, this is not a treatment for invasive cancer. For laser surgery to be an option, the doctor must be certain that the worst lesion was biopsied and that invasive cancer is not a concern.

For more information on laser surgery, see our document Lasers in Cancer Treatment.
