What are the benefits?
PDT has one major advantage over other forms of cancer treatments in that it is patient friendly in terms of having fewer side effects and being minimally invasive. Patients are treated as day cases offering them the comfort and support of their home and family.
PDT is a highly localised form of cancer treatment and only treats the cancerous areas. The photosensitising chemicals used in PDT directly target the cancerous area so that no other part of the body will be affected by the treatment.
