According to the American Cancer Society, skin cancer is the most common of all cancers and the skin cancer Melanoma causes the most skin cancer deaths. Photodynamic Therapy is used to treat AKs, pre-cancerous growths as well as skin cancer. The therapy combines a photosensitizing drug with a specific type of light to eliminate cancer cells.
