For example, I call therapeutic phlebotomy "blood letting," which is what happens when I go every other month to have about a pint of blood removed to reduce the iron overload that resulted from multiple transfusions.
The name game has come to mind because tomorrow I go to Boston for my annual face fry.
The term is actually photodynamic therapy, or PDT, and my dermatologist uses it to treat my face for spots that might turn into cancer. It is definitely better than getting more skin cancers, and by the way I think I have another squamous cell, this one on the side of my hand, so I will be surprised if she does not biopsy it.
