What is Laryngeal cancer?

Laryngeal Cancer is a disease in which cancer cells grow in the larynx. The larynx, also called the voice box, is a short passageway shaped like a triangle that lies just below the pharynx in the neck. The pharynx is a hollow tube about five inches long that starts behind the nose and goes down to the neck to become part of the esophagus.

There are three main parts of the larynx: the glottis, the middle part of the larynx where the vocal cords are located, the supraglottis, the tissue above the glottis, and the subglottis, the tissue below the glottis. The subglottis connects to the trachea, which takes air to the lungs.

Cancer of the larynx, can also be called laryngeal cancer, can develop in any part of the larynx, but most begins in the glottis. The inner walls of the larynx are lined with cells called squamous cells. Almost all laryngeal cancers begin in these cells.
