Laser Diagnosis: Raman spectroscopy can be used in the non-invasive diagnosis of skin cancers, with a high degree of accuracy. The technology is complicated, but it is used to detect the shift in light transmission when a superficial laser beam passed over a lesion in the skin encounters molecules from a dense cluster of cells with a high dna content, as would be present in a skin cancer. ...Read more

It may be associated with higher recurrence rate compared to rubber band ligation, but with fewer side effects. Other options include sclerotherapy, open/closed surgical excision and stapled hemorrhoidectomy. Surgical intervention is usually more expensive than an office procedure. ...Read more
