The challenge in cancer management is to find a balance between the intended therapeutic outcomes whilst preserving and maintaining function and aesthetics. This dilemma initiated ongoing efforts focusing on PDT which is now considered a historical re-utilized technique showing promising results but with many limitations. PDT has emerged as a successful and clinically acceptable therapeutic approach to the management of malignant and benign diseases. It is important to understand that PDT cannot completely replace other treatment modalities but can be used as a useful adjunct or as additional treatment.
