This is Dr. David
I am a cancer doctorl
skin CO2 laser therapy can not treat DCIS ductal carcinoma insitu breast cancer.
DCIS is treated with lumpectomy surgery, radiation therapy and anti-estrogen hormone therapy like tamoxifen pills for 5 years.
skin CO2 laser therapy is for treatment of the skin and can't penetrate into the breast so it is not helpful
have you had a lumpectomy so far for DCIS?
have you seen a radiation oncology doctor to talk about radiation therapy to the breast?
