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?
