The CO2 laser surgery in primary radical an palliative treatment of breast cancer and cancer of the vulva is recognized, since many years, as established method of treatment in several centres of the world.

We are using two surgical laser systems, CO2 laser and Nd:YAG laser, for primary and secondary treatment of breast cancer and cancer of the vulva and, in the last period, for palliative surgery of recurrences of ovarian cancer. The comparison studies on mice (Lewis Loung carcinoma) are very wel1-known, and the results show indisputable superiority of CO2 laser tumor excision over conventional cold knife surgery.
