Restraints: -

However, photodynamic therapy has several limitations. Limitations such as difficulty in treating large tumor masses, lower tissue penetration properties of visible light used in photodynamic therapy, and limited therapeutic depth. These are hindering the adoption of photodynamic therapy. Moreover, there are some disadvantages of using photodynamic therapy. These include the risk of adverse reactions such as swelling, burning sensation, and scarring in the nearby normal tissues, among others. The therapy also causes temporary side-effects such as coughing, shortness of breath, or painful breathing. Such factors are limiting the use of photodynamic therapy and in turn, restraining the market growth to a certain extent.
