Laryngeal Cancer

Laryngeal cancer affects more than 12,000 persons every year in the U.S., and occurs in men more often than women. That is because the two main risk factors are smoking and alcohol abuse, which, in the past, have been more common among men than women. As these habits increase among women, the risk for these cancers also increases.
Cancers of the larynx are defined by the location:
  • Supraglottis (the tissue above the glottis)
  • Glottis (the middle part of the larynx where the vocal cords are located)
  • Subglottis (the tissue below the glottis that connects the larynx to the trachea)
There are different types of laryngeal cancer
  • Squamous Cell Carcinoma (accounts for 95% of cases)
  • Adenocarcinoma
  • Sarcoma
Treatment for laryngeal cancer usually consists of surgery, radiation, and/or chemotherapy. Often, a combination of approaches is used depending on the stage of the disease and the presence of other medical conditions that may limit a person's ability to tolerate certain treatments.
