Hello doctor, I have a permanent tattoo on my hand and I want to remove it with laser treatment. I am worried about 1. Will it cause me skin cancer. 2. Will it affect my fertility. Or decreases my chance of being pregnant. Going to get married soon. please help.

Permanent tattoo does not cause fertility and nothing to do with pregnancy, butany type of skin disease may occur because it depends on which type of chemical is used and skin sensitivity.
