Cancer continues to be among the leading causes of death worldwide. The use of nanomaterials is becoming increasingly common in the medical application field, especially in cancer diagnosis and therapeutic. This study was done to evaluation the efficacy of photothermal therapy by using gold nanoparticles with laser irradiation on two cancer cell lines in vitro, HeLa (human cervicle cancer cell line) and AMN3 (mammary adenocarcinoma), in addition, use gold nanoparticles alone, for comparison between them. The results shows that photothermal therapy more effect than gold nanoparticles alone on cancer cells, as well as AMN3  more affect than HeLa cell line, so the effect is related to type cell line, concentration, incubation period and size of particles. The present study suggests that photothermal therapy by gold nanoparticles is a good candidate for medical application as anticancer in future.
