Can laser surgery be used to treat prostate cancer?

Although much less common than open surgery with a scalpel, lasers can also be used to surgically treat this disease. However, surgeons and urologists are faced with a problem: the cancer is often poorly located within the prostate, complicating its resection by means of a transurethral laser.
