Cancer of the Throat

What is Cancer of the throat?

If you are a smoker, heavy alcohol drinker and have hoarse voice for a prolonged period of time, you need to have your throat checked by an ENT Specialist to rule out cancer of the throat (Cancer of the larynx). A full ENT, head & neck examination, including a flexible nasoendoscopy will be performed. If there is a growth on the voice box, a biopsy (removing a small piece of tissue for testing) of the growth is required to confirm the presence or absence of cancer. The extent of the cancer is the determined by an imaging scan (either CT scan or MRI scan) of the neck area. The treatment of throat cancer depends on the stage of the condition. Treatment options include radiotherapy, chemotherapy and surgery.
