In this paper, progress on the gold-nanoparticle-enhanced photothermal therapy is reviewed. Size- and shape-dependent optical absorption of gold nanoparticles, the effects of various parameters on the therapeutic efficiency, and the mechanisms of gold-nanoparticle-assisted cancer therapy are discussed. Future research directions of gold-nanoparticle-assisted cancer photothermal therapy are also suggested.
