Laser Therapy and Cancer...What's the Latest on its Use and Safety?
There is a lot of confusion about how laser therapy, and its mechanism of action, photobiomodulation, interacts with cancerous lesions and tumor growth. While multiple studies over the years provide evidence that laser therapy can be a benefit in relieving symptoms associated with chemotherapy treatments, such as in the case of oral mucositis (Bjordal, Bensadoun, et al) and lymphedema (Baxter, Liu, et al), does it increase or decrease the proliferation...
