Optical imaging modalities have emerged as a keystone in oncological research, capable of providing

molecular and cellular information on cancer with the advantage of being minimally invasive toward

healthy tissues. Photothermal therapy (PTT) has shown great potential, with the exceptional advantages

of high specificity and noninvasiveness. Combining surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS)-

based optical imaging with PTT has shown tremendous potential in cancer theranostics (therapeutics

+ diagnosis). This comprehensive review article provides up-to-date information by exploring recent

works focused mainly on the development of plasmonic nanoparticles formedical applications using SERSguided

PTT, including the fundamental principles behind SERS and the plasmon heating effect for PTT.
