Cancer of Larynx

Ratings: (0)|Views: 355 |Likes:
This booklet is for you if you have or someone close to you has cancer of the larynx.
If you are a patient your doctor or nurse may wish to go through the booklet with you and mark sections that are particularly important for you.

There is no single cause of cancer of the larynx. It’s likely that several factors are involved. Not all of these risk factors are known, but research is ongoing into the possible causes.
Smoking and heavy drinking of alcohol (especially spirits) greatly increase the risk of developing cancer of the larynx.
Cancer of the larynx occurs mainly in middle-aged and older people, but it can occur in younger people who started smoking at an early age. It is much more common in men than in women.
