Here’s some good news for those suffering from breast cancer — scientists have developed what they claim is a new treatment which could  destroy tumours with a blast of laser light.

In fact, a team of British surgeons has developed the revolutionary treatment for breast cancer, which involves no surgery, can be carried out in only a few minutes and doesn’t harm healthy cells.The team plans to start clinical trials of the “photodynamic therapy” this year. During PDT, a drug is injected into the patient’s bloodstream that makes the cancer cells sensitive to light. According to the researchers at the Royal Free Hospital, London, when a lowlevel laser beam is shone at the cancer through the skin, the cells self-destruct.
